Forest Pack 6.1.5 released with IPR improvements
iToo Software has released a new version of Forest Pack, it’s scattering plugin for 3DS Max. The main features of the new release focus on improving stability and compatibility when working with V-Ray and Corona’s IPR modes. According to iToo, users are now able to see and edit nearly all the attributes of a scatter live during IPR renders, including Forest Pack’s Item Editor tools that allow the user to fine-tune scatters by moving individual items. Forest Colour, the map for randomising and tinting bitmaps for randomising leaves and other small elements of a model, is also compatible.
Forest Pack costs €220, and a free Lite version is also available. Find out more about the new release on iToo Software’s website.
Also of note, iToo recently released several tutorials about using Macros and Effects in Forest Pack and RailClone including how to disguise repetition of textures and geometry using randomised rotation and mirroring, how to create a herringbone floor, and how to scatter on displaced geometry.
