Publisher description for Forest Pack Lite

Forest Pack Lite program icon

Forest Pack 3 is a package of plugins for 3D Studio Max and 3D Studio Viz, designed to give a complete solution for creation of vast surfaces of trees and plants. Forest enables you to Combine billboards, high poly meshes and proxies, and using Mental Ray and VRay native shaders, create scenes with virtually unlimited number of objects and polygons. Forest Pack is optimized for speed. It can create more than 500,000 trees per second at viewport, modify any parameter and rebuild them in real-time. Render is accelerated using native shaders for Mental Ray and VRay. A typical scene may include 100.000 trees of 1 million of polys each one, and render just in a few minutes. To minimize resource utilization, tree distribution can be restricted to the camera's field of view. This enables the user to create a fly by of a forest of virtually millions of trees, without wasting scene resources on trees that are out outside the edge of the Frame. Trees are created from an editable geometry list, combining textured planar objects, custom meshes or proxies in a same forest object. Billboards have special support, including optimized material shaders and Fake Shadows. Forest Pack Pro includes more than 100 maps of Trees and Shrubs especially created for use with the plugin. Forest includes a Library Browser, to select and assign the plants with a single click. The library may be modified by the user, to include new types of geometries, materials and icons. * Custom Edit mode enables you not only to create automatic distributions, but also add, place or edit trees manually using the Creation Tools. * Automatic distribution of trees over any surface (irregular terrains, etc.). You can limit the elements in a surface by ranges of altitude and slope. * Random transformation of position, rotation, scale and... color!. Add more variation to your scene without incrementing the number of materials. * Animation support, including multiple random samples.
