Tree It: a free tree generator, very easy to use, featuring really simple LOD model creation:

I use it for making low poly vegetation models. Proper conversion is needed from .dbo or .x to keep normals (.obj does not keep them).

Great stuff! Sticky this thread please :slight_smile:

Houdini realesed a non-commersial version:
I checked the possibility for FBX export and it says filmbox-fbx, which I dont know what is yet.

Houdini Apprentice includes a wide range of file formats including FBX import** [but no export]** and ALEMBIC import [but no export]

Here is my list of resources:

I’ll have a dig through your list and add some new blocks to this page! Already saw some good stuff in there!

So filmbox-FBX is the same as FBX?

Yes , this a Autodesk file format :smiley:

Hi there! Thanks for the thread. It is very useful for everyone here, I guess. I’d like to share some of mine too. I use website for cool and useful web design tips and different web builders. They help me a lot if I need to create a nice website fast

This is not what this thread is for vdavydenko.

I have checked the site and found nothing that will help game developers for free (starts at $99), also for a site that is offering such services the web design of the page is a little weak to say the least…

I decided to see what the other post you wrote in the forum was and…well, surprise surprise, more spam.

Note to others: if you are looking for some affordable hosting, I’d recommend someone like dreamhost, I picked up a deal that hosts as many domains as I need and includes an SVN repo (of unlimited size) for less than £50 a year…

Thanks, I’ve added it to the list. looking at the comparison chart on their site FBX is import only but it looks like it might be possible to export to .OBJ
