The Scattering tool for 3ds Max
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.
