IDV have integrated their Speedtree technology into the Unreal Engine for licensing by developers. Speedtree is an easy solution for adding very realistic three-dimensional trees to Unreal Engine projects. You can view more screenshots and get more information here. There is also a 26.7 MB demo that utilizes the Unreal Engine 2 Runtime to allow you to tour three maps featuring this technology.
Available for immediate download directly from IDV’s website, the Unreal Engine-based SpeedTreeRT demo comprises three levels: a medium detail world with hundreds of trees, a high-detail day level with dozens of trees, and a high-detail night level with dozens of trees. In all three levels, the trees feature the wind effects, self-shadowing, dynamic LOD and realism that have made SpeedTree the real-time foliage solution of choice for game developers around the world.
