There went quite some time into this project and I managed to finish it right in time for the Rogue One release. Like most of my personal projects I also used it to play around and learn new stuff. In this particular case I tried to learn more about a plant creation software by E-On Software called Plant Factory. It's not the most intuitive tool and I admit that I didn't learn as much productive stuff as I wanted. Still I was able to get what I need for the scene I had in mind. The scene as a whole was composed and rendered in Vue. With Vue I rendered it with multipass options to have masks of all kinds of objects from within the scene as well as some highlight and shadow layers for enhanced detail.
