Update: iToo Software Forest Pack 8.2.2 – Improvements to ForestSets and the Library Browser

itoo forest pack 8.2.2 update

This small update to iToo Software Forest Pack is packed with improvements to the Library Browser and ForestSets, as well as many user-requested changes and added support for V-Ray 5 in 3DS Max 2024 and restored support for V-Ray 3.6.

What’s new in Forest Pack 8.2.2?

ForestSet Improvements

  • Implemented support for ForestSet in ‘Forest’ type Areas.
  • Enhanced efficiency of Object areas using ForestSet.
    • Instead of creating one large area using the geometry of all objects in the set, areas are now individually generated internally, one for each object.

Library Browser Improvements

  • Included support for ForestLOD and ForestSet.
    • Note: This feature necessitates saving the library scene with Forest 8.2.2 or a later version.
  • Added a new option in Library Browser -> Preferences -> ‘Use unique names on imported objects’.
    • Default setting: Library objects are imported into the ‘forest_templates’ layer with a unique identifier, ‘_forest_library_XXXX’.
    • When enabled, this option allows users to disable the prefix and import objects using their original names.
    • Caution: Disabling this option may overwrite existing objects in the layer with the same name.

V-Ray Support

  • Introduced support for V-Ray 5 in 3DS Max 2024.
  • Reinstated support for V-Ray 3.6, previously removed in FP 8.2.0.


  • Fixed an issue where the Forest object would be permanently disabled if Distributed Rendering in V-Ray was used with ‘Use local host’ unchecked.
  • Resolved artifacts encountered when using high Resolution values (above 4096) in Object Areas.
  • Added a previously missing message in the Library Browser when loading Forest Pro items in Forest Lite.

To update, you’ll find the latest version in the products section of your user panel. If your maintenance has expired, don’t worry it can be renewed for another year with no penalty for lapsed plans.
