What is Forest Pack?
Forest Pack is the world’s most popular scattering plugin for 3ds Max®. It provides a complete solution for creating vast areas of objects, from trees and plants to buildings, crowds, aggregates, ground-cover, rocks and more. If you can model it, Forest-Pack can scatter it.
Countless studios rely on Forest-Pack’s production-tested algorithms and native shaders to render scenes with virtually unlimited numbers of objects and polygons, all without putting a strain on computer resources.
Simulate natural distribution patterns and get the most out of your assets using advanced mapping and randomisation tools, or fine-tune your scatters with granular control over every aspect of the plugin.
CREATE WITHOUT RESTRICTIONS USING FOREST-PACK AND TAKE YOUR RENDERS TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
For this release iToo focused on expanding Forest-Pack is versatility starting with the ability to scatter lights using any powerful distribution modes and randomization tools. The new version also adds real-time support with a new beta exporter for Unity alongside support for Chaos Vantage and Unreal Engine via Datasmith. Corona users can now benefit from Forest Pack’s invaluable animation modes and the library browser has been completely rewritten to make finding and adding assets a pleasure.
Talking of assets, color matching assets when they come from different sources just got much easier thanks to new tools that allow users to quickly tweak the hue saturation and value of entire scatters, and even limit the affected colors based on their hue.
In addition to new features, Forest-Pack also adds new content. Two completely new libraries are included, bringing the total number to 15 collections, comprising over 430 individual presets and assets. As always, these libraries are included free of charge, in fact. buying the libraries separately would almost certainly cost several times the price of the plugin.
