Forest Pack is the world’s most popular scattering plugin for 3ds Max. 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.
Forest Pack is used widely for architectural visualization, visual effects and AEC. Let’s figure out with iRender why Forest Pack is one of the top-ranked plugins for Autodesk 3ds Max.
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. The software simulates natural distribution patterns and gets the most out of your assets using advanced mapping and randomization tools, or fine-tunes your scatters with granular control over every aspect of the plugin.

Forest Pack includes all the features you need to create perfect scatters, every time. The fully integrated solution uses a familiar UI and workflow to create almost unlimited geometry with complete control over every detail. That’s not all, use Forest Maps to randomize maps and add tints, quickly populate a scene using our included library presets or create your own, and use Forest Tools to convert scatters to max instances or XML data for use in large pipelines. With its power, unrivaled features list, ease-of-use, and premium support, Forest Pack will change the way you render.
Forest Pack is fully multi-threaded and highly optimized for speed and efficiency. A typical scene can effortlessly use over 100.000 objects each with 1 million polys, and render in just a few minutes.
Points-Cloud display mode faithfully previews scattered objects in the viewports as they will appear in the render. Amazingly fast, this mode allows you to move and edit items in real-time, while maintaining an accurate preview of your scenes.
From the moment you pick a scatter area Forest Pack is fully parametric. With no destructive editing you make design decisions at any time, and see the results in the viewport instantly.
Recreate the limitless variation found in nature with the ability to randomize distribution, objects, transforms, animation, bitmaps, and tints. Mimic natural growth patterns using the innovative Clusters feature.
Maps Control when you need it. Drive parameters using maps and expressions or use Tree Editor mode to scatter along splines, on markers or even edit and place individual objects.
