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 randomization tools, or fine-tune your scatters with granular control over every aspect of the plugin.

Key Features

  • Fast
    Forest Pack is fully multi-threaded and highly optimized for speed and efficiency. A typical scene can effortlessly use over 100,000 objects each with 1 million polys, and render in just a few minutes.

  • Interactive
    Points-Cloud display mode faithfully previews scattered objects in the viewports as they will appear in the render. Amazingly fast, this mode allows you to move and edit items in real-time, while maintaining an accurate preview of your scenes.

  • Parametric Areas
    From the moment you pick a scatter area Forest Pack is fully parametric. With no destructive editing you make design decisions at any time, and see the results in the viewport instantly.

  • Natural
    Recreate the limitless variation found in nature with the ability to randomise distribution, objects, transforms, animation, bitmaps and tints. Mimic natural growth patterns using the innovative Clusters feature.

  • Precise
    Maps Control when you need it. Drive parameters using maps and expressions or use Tree Editor mode to scatter along splines, on markers or even edit and place individual objects.

  • Ready To Use
    Use Forest Pack's built-in Library Browser to select and assign plants with a single click. Over 100 models are included in Forest Pack Pro, or you can create your own presets and share them effortlessly with colleagues.

New Features in Forest Pack 7

  • Scatter Lights
    Scatter hundreds or thousands of lights and other non-geometric objects. Corona users can even use Forest Colour to randomise light tint and power.

  • New Unity Plugin (Beta)
    Export Forest Pack objects to Unity using an experimental new plugin that takes advantage of Unity's Hybrid Rendering technology for efficient real-time instancing.

  • Supported by Unreal and Chaos Vantage
    Make the jump to real-time and export scatters to Unreal Engine or Chaos Group's Project Vantage in just a few clicks.

  • Rewritten Library Browser
    The library browser has been rewritten from the ground up. Add 100s of objects selected from a scene and automatically build matlibs and generate thumbnails.

  • Colour Correct Entire Scatters
    Gone are the days of fiddling with complex multi sub object materials, now you can colour correct entire scatters from a single simplified interface.

  • Randomise Animation in Corona
    Scatter animated objects in Corona including the ability to sample and randomise animated geometry or control playback using maps.

  • New Tree Stumps Library
    Bring your renders to life with 40 high-quality photoscanned tree stumps plus optimised presets for quickly populating large areas.

  • New Hedges Library
    Add hedges using a new library of 89 assets. 10 species are included in five heights ranging from 0.5m to 2.5m, plus bonus topiary presets for hedges of any shape.

  • Improved Reference Mode
    Make the most of reference mode with the ability to add multiple items per triangle, randomise their position and filter by material ID.

  • Forest Colour works outside Forest Pack
    Use Forest Colour to randomise maps and tint on items instantiated using Forest Tools, or even on non-Forest objects.

  • Simplified Creation
    Create scatters more efficiently than ever before with new creation methods and faster ways to add source objects to the items list.

  • Improved usability
    Navigate the interface more quickly with 'Solo Mode', use simplified and improved camera culling, easily optimise and modify materials and much more.




RailClone is the world's most powerful artist-friendly parametric modelling plugin for 3ds Max®. Its unique array-based approach to asset creation is fast, efficient, and easy-to-learn. Use the convenient node-based editor to create rules that combine, sequence, transform, deform, slice, bevel, and distribute instanced geometry or proxies. Create variation by randomising objects, UV mapping, and material IDs. Render huge objects made from thousands of highly detailed parts using native geometry shaders. With RailClone, creating sophisticated parametric models has never been simpler.

Features

  • Versatile
    With RailClone there are no limits on your creativity. Unlike other scripts and plugins that are designed for a single type of model, in RailClone you can create almost any parametric object.

  • Easy to Use
    RailClone uses an easy-to-understand graphical Style Editor to create sophisticated structures. Unlike other procedural tools, absolutely no programming knowledge is necessary.

  • Fast!
    RailClone is fully multi-threaded and highly optimized for speed. This, coupled with the Points-cloud display mode, and native geometry shaders means that you can create and render huge parametric objects, made from thousands of highly detailed parts.

  • Adaptative
    RailClone transforms, slices and deforms geometry to create a seamless object. Just set the construction rules, and all the necessary deformations are applied automatically, even on curved paths!

  • Smart
    Let RailClone do the thinking for you with advanced algorithms to deform geometry to follow sloping paths and surfaces. Inclined and uneven walls, stairs, handrails and balustrades and stepped fences are no longer a chore to create in 3DS Max.

  • Ready to go
    RailClone Pro comes with over 350 predefined styles, including Fences, Railings, Barriers, Traffic, Walls, and much more. The library browser is fully customizable, allowing you to add new categories and models with a single click and share them with your colleagues.

Version 4 Highlights

  • Get Material from Source Objects
    RailClone 4 has a new option to use materials applied directly from the source geometry. Users no longer need to manually create complex multi-sub object materials. This feature is particularly useful when using RailClone as a layout tool or using it with stock models.

  • Nested generators
    Graphs can be dramatically simplified by nesting one generator as a segment inside another, while opening up exciting new possibilities for what's possible with RailClone

  • Quick Mesh Mode
    RailClone already has unparalleled instancing power at render time, but it's now possible to enable viewport instancing to preview hundreds of millions of polygons directly in the 3ds Max viewport.

  • RC Spline Modifier
    Geometry can be placed precisely on paths using markers created with the new Spline Modifier. Each marker can contain rich information that can be used to control nearly any aspect of a graph.

  • Automatic Boolean Capping
    Clipped objects can now be automatically capped to make it easier than ever to create a seamless object. Capped faces are UVed using real world mapping coordinates so you can easily apply materials to the new geometry.

  • New Group Mode
    The compose operator now behaves more like 3ds Max's Groups. The update Group mode now calculates all the combined segments as a single object with a bounding box that encompasses its entire size.

  • Performance Improvements
    RailClone 4 introduces huge improvements in instancing efficiency when using shared segments or linked styles by including a global cache for all RC objects in the scene.

  • Transform nodes are much more logical
    In previous versions of RailClone, the order of transform nodes had no effect. In RailClone 4 this has been made much more intuitive so that the order of Transform nodes is now taken into consideration when applying a rotation, translation, or scale operation.

  • Usability Improvements?
    As well as HiDPI support, the style editor has also gained many usability improvements including the ability to insert a node on a wire, automatic rewiring on deletion, grid view and snap, the ability to select and delete unused nodes and much more.

  • Plus many more smaller improvements to make working with RailClone even easier, including two scale padding options, instancing in Corona and Arnold with the Material operator, a new statistics window, changes to the selector operator, X-axis offset, a new random by generator mode, expressions improvements and even more!

Mental Ray compatibility in Max 2017 and 2018 (for Forest Pack)

From 3ds Max 2017 Mental Ray was an optional installation. Forest Pack for Max 2017 still has many dependencies on the Mental Ray libraries and is required by the iToo plug-ins to operate correctly. Please make sure that Mental Ray is installed for 3DS Max 2017, even if you don't intend to use it to avoid errors.

From 3ds Max 2018 Mental Ray is no longer included, and for technical reasons iToo has had to temporarily suspend support.




RailClone

  • Supported versions of Autodesk 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design (64 bit versions)
    • 3ds Max: versions 2013 to 2020
    • 3ds Max Design: versions 2013 to 2015

  • Supported renderers
    • Arnold 5.1 and above is supported from 3ds Max 2018 onwards. Please make sure the MaxToA plugin is up to date. You can download the most recent version from the Solid Angle website.
    • Mental Ray is supported in version 2012 - 2017 only.
    • V-Ray and V-Ray RT supported versions are 2.5 or greater for V-Ray 2, and 3.7 or greater for V-Ray 3, V-Ray Next and V-Ray GPU update 1.1 or above
    • Thea Render 1.3 and onwards.
    • Corona Renderer 1 and onwards.
    • Redshift 2.6.24 or above

    For unsupported renderers it is still possible to use RailClone using RailClone Tools to convert the objects to standard Max instances.

Mental Ray support in Max 2017 and 2018 (for RailClone)

From 3ds Max 2017 Mental Ray was an optional installation. RailClone for Max 2017 still has many dependencies on the Mental Ray libraries and is required by the iToo plug-ins to operate correctly. Please make sure that Mental Ray is installed for 3DS Max 2017, even if you don't intend to use it to avoid errors.

From 3ds Max 2018 Mental Ray is no longer included, as a consequence RailClone's native instancing features are not supported for Mental Ray in Max 2018.
