Xfrog is a procedural organic 3D modeller that allows you to create and animate 3d trees, flowers, nature based special effects or architectural forms. Xfrog is available as a Mac OS, Windows, and Linux plug-in for Maya, Cinema 4D and as a standalone application.



Xfrog 5 for Maya

Xfrog 5 adds many new Procedural Objects to Maya. By combining these with Maya components/objects you can create a wide variety of organic models and animations based on the building blocks of Nature.


Branch Object - Create multi-level branching structures with extremely realistic growth. Animate from seed to adult tree.
Phyllotaxis Object - Arrange components using the mathematical "golden section". e.g. a sunflower's petals and seed patterns.
Hydra Object - Arranges components in user defined specialized circular patterns. a wide variety of uses.
Curvature Object - Creates Splines which can be used as a basis for naturally curved leafs or twigs. A very powerful addition to Maya.
Variation Object - Combine different Objects with the Branch, Phyllotaxis and Hydra Objects, for example you can use different leaves scattered throughout a tree, or any sort of variations that you need for higher realism.
Tropism Object - Robust Photo and Gravitropism Simulator which pulls the entire hierarchy towards gravity and towards light, with infinite user controls over animation and strength.


  • Multi-track animation
  • Soft Insert animation feature; removes "popping"
  • Phyllotaxis (Phiball) can place objects on any Surface of Revolution
  • Phyllotaxis now allows direct control of the orientation of multiplied objects
  • Branch Object combines the power of the Tree, Leaf and Horn Components
  • Branch Object mesh resolution is independent from number of branches
  • Branch Object can now generate several branches per node
  • Curve Control now uses spline curves to control parameters and allows for much better control
  • Any Maya curve can control Xfrog Objects even text curves
  • Curve Nurbs offers controls similar to the Xfrog 3.5 Horn Component, while being more flexible
  • Hydra offers more control
  • New Variation Object allows exceptions in the iterations of multiplier Objects
  • Level Of Detail offers more control
