What is Road Creator Pro?




Road Creator Pro is a plugin for 3ds Max that creates indicative roads, trees, street furniture and building footprints. It is used in conjunction with the free Road Creator Lite plugin, which allows you to draw road splines and edit road parameters. Road Creator Pro then converts those splines into realistic roads with textures, markings, kerbs, pavements, intersections and more. You can also add trees, street furniture and building footprints along the roads to create a complete urban environment.
