railcloneRailClone

RailClone is the world’s most powerful artist-friendly parametric modeling 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 randomizing 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.

forest packForest Pack

Forest Pack is the world’s most popular scattering plugin for 3ds Max®. Capable of rendering nearly limitless geometry, 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.

Create without restrictions using Forest Pack and take your renders to the next level.

Railclone System Requirements

updated 5/20/2022

Supported versions of 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design

Our plugins support the following 3ds Max 64 bit versions.

  • 3ds Max 2017-2023
  • Unofficially supported. Due to Autodesk licensing policy Forest Pack is only able to officially support 3ds Max 2017 to 2022. The installer also includes versions of Forest Pack for 3ds Max 2013 to 2016 which should install and work as expected, but we are unable to test them.
    • 3ds Max 2013-2016
    • 3ds Max Design 2013-2015

Supported Renderers

RailClone supports native instancing in the renderers and versions listed below

  • Arnold 7.1 (MaxToA 5.2) and above is supported Please make sure the MaxToA plugin is up to date. You can download the most recent version from the Arnold Renderer 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

Mental Ray support in Max 2017 and 2018

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 our 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.

Due to technical limitations, feature support varies between renderers.  Click here to view the compatibility chart.

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