New POV-Tree version has a lot of changes.
That's why I decided to make it available as
a beta version first.

You can get release notes, screenshots,
download page and another information here:

Please let me know if you will find out any
problem.

Gena.

You copy-pasted Xfrog screenshots didn't you ?? ;-)
It seems really improved.

Hi Gena,
This version feels really fine and is much easier to control than the
previous version.
I got two types of warnings from POV-Ray while rendering a tree:
1) BOTTOM_COLOR_x and TOP_COLOR_x are rgbft, while in TOMTREEm.inc they are
read as rgb
2) I get a long list of identical warnings from the test pov-file concerning
"bounded CSG union split". This might refer to the bounded_by's in
TOMTREEm.inc. I am not sure.

Excellent work!!!

Thomas

Please use TOMTREE-1.4.inc instead of TOMTREEm.inc
It supports rgbft colors and also UV mapping for leaves
which you can define in POV-Tree.

If you downloaded ZIP file you can find TOMTREE-1.4.inc
there. Or you can get it here as a separate file:

You are right. I think there is something wrong with
calculation of bounded_by parameter. Maybe it makes sense
to remove it at all if it won't affect performance too much.
I'll check that.

> Excellent work!!!

Thank you Thomas!
Hopefully it will be even better in the future :)
I have many ideas about new features.

Gena.

Aaah!!! Being lazy, I only downloaded the jar file. But even more stupid: I
had already TOMTREE-1.4.inc from the previous download!! I just overlooked
its presence in my folder... <bash! bash!> (head against tree trunk)

Indeed. Yes it might affect. However, I think rendering through the inc file
is good for testing, afterwards a mesh is easier to use in a scene. So,
maybe, it doesn't matter so much.

Well... I am looking forward to it!!!
