IDV (http://www.idvinc.com/) has uploaded new video, showcasing hand-drawing features and APEX Vegetation (http://developer.nvidia.com/object/apex_vegetation.html) integration for SpeedTree 5.1 Modeller (http://www.speedtree.com/apps/modeler.php).

A Live Oak tree is hand drawn on-the-fly directly in the SpeedTree 5.1 Modeler. After the tree is created in less than 1 minute, full physical interaction is provided instantly via the APEX Vegetation Module.

Rigid body skeleton is generated automatically during authoring process, and special leaf particle emitters are used to add some more realism.
