iToo Software ships Forest Pack 4 for 3ds Max

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013 | Posted by Jim Thacker

iToo Software has released an update to Forest Pack, its vegetation system for 3ds Max. The plugin enables users to scatter millions of billboards or meshes across a surface while keeping render times manageable.

Extended support for third-party renderers
Forest Pack 4 adds support for the full gamut of third-party 3ds Max render engines. The plugin now supports Maxwell Render, V-Ray RT, Arion, Octane Render and Thea Render natively.

Other new features include support for groups within Custom Objects, enabling users to scatter groups of plants – for example, mixtures of grass and flowers – preserving their composition.

The point cloud display gets a new, more realistic shading mode; there is support for custom Look At targets independent of the camera; and new options to control Density and Scale falloff by slope.

There have also been a number of changes to the built-in Library Browser and Tree Editor: you can find a full list on the iToo Software website.

Try the Lite version for free
Forest Pack 4 Pro is available now. Prices start at €180 (around $240). The Lite version of the plugin, which offers a restricted set of features, is free.
