CITIGEN is a Blender addon. No need for HDRIs, no need for rigging animation cameras for simple drone shots like POI or Course Lock! With a few clicks, you can create a limitless variety of city environments equipped with streets, traffic lights, trees, and etc--as huge as your RAMs, CPUs, and GPUs allow. The default city props that ship with CITIGEN will look like a real thing from a certain distance, good enough for drone-shot-like scenarios, but you can add your own detailed building model to the CITIGEN library for close-up shots!
(CG artists can use their building asset(s) in addition to/in place of the default CITIGEN buildings. Set the size of the city block and CITIGEN will automatically create streets and parks and place your buildings within the city procedurally. But make efficient use of the size of the city, because the bigger the size, the longer your rendering time will take.)

CAUTIONS: CITIGEN comes with an HDRI environment baker that can create commercial-grade HDRI images. (Although this feature was first introduced to speed up the render time in procedural-cloud-filled settings, You can also use this feature to create 360-virtual environments that can serve as a background of your mid-air scene.) The purchase of CITIGEN, however, does not grant you the right to sell/share those images, as well as any part of the addon including the python codes.
- IS THIS A GAME-GRADE ENVIRONMENT?No, it's meant for films or animation in drone-shot-like scenarios. Or you can use your own detailed models for close-up shots with CITIGEN props in the background.
ARE YOU SURE THIS ADDON IS SAFE TO USE FOR COMMERCIAL PROJECTS? THIS IS ABSURDLY CHEAP!Blender has an incredible number of users, the pricing is targeted to reach as many Blender users as possible.
