Developed by 3DQUAKERS, Forester is a plugin for Maxon Cinema 4D that provides tools for the creation of natural elements such as trees, plants, rocks, as well as their geological distribution over polygonal terrain. Forester is comprised of 4 modules, namely Forester Trees, Multiflora, MultiCloner and Forester Rock. Forester is one of the best and most successful Cinema 4D plugins because it offers a completely procedural solution to environment creation all within the familiar Cinema 4D workspace.
Let’s explore this plugin with iRender today.
Fast tree creation
Forester’s streamlined workflow enables the user to create trees from scratch or start from a tree library item and end up with a beautiful tree in no time.
Extensive tree library
Forester’s tree library is versatile enough to satisfy most needs. User-created trees and plants can be saved into the Cinema 4D preset library for later use.
Industry-leading wind effects
No other plant creation tool comes close to the realism and ease of use of the HyperWind technology that Forester offers for its trees and plants.
A procedural plant is an editable object that can be turned into an unlimited number of plants using specific parameters and rules. All Multiflora objects are parametric.
Extensive plant library
Multiflora comes with an extensive plant library ranging from grass, to wheat and flowers. Any plant imaginable can be created with Multiflora.
Hyperwind on plants
Plants react to wind just as trees do, to create an immersive natural environment that just comes to life.
High density scatter
Scatter hundreds of thousands of objects with ease using Forester’s MultiCloner, combining ease of use with ultimate control.
MultiCloner’s geological filtering rules allow for clones to be filtered according to slope, height, camera frustum, noise functions and weight maps.
MultiCloner’s distribution controls allow for artistic as well as realistic placement of clones. Even spacing and distribution bias give extra control over clone.
High rez procedural rocks
Rocks are created as procedural objects with many functions to allow for realistic rock planting.
Deformation level control
Rocks have 3 deformation levels, each providing a different noise pattern. User can use all 3 or a combination to achieve the desired effect.
Seamless textures are wrapped around the rock with no visible seams. Forester rock is providing the UVs for user-created seamless textures.
- Windows and Mac OS X.
- Cinema 4D R18 and above.
- Forester supports all major Cinema 4D third-party renderers, including Arnold, Octane, Corona, Redshift, Maxwell, and Thea Render. Vray 5 is not currently supported, as it needs special support from Chaosgroup.
Other than Forester, 3DQUAKERS also offers two new expansion packs: two new tree and plant libraries for Forester for Cinema 4D. These expansion packs are not a simple library, they are rather a plugin for Forester, offering additional features that are not available in Forester.
It provides 51 production level trees, all with materials and textures, with additional features such as render engine specific material creation, as well as seasonal creation of leaves. The generated trees are fully procedural, meaning that they can be modified infinitely just like any other Forester tree. In addition, each tree comes in 3 different representations: Adult, Young and Low Poly.
It provides 51 production level shrub plants, all with materials and textures, with additional features such as render engine specific material creation. The generated plants are fully procedural, meaning that they can be modified infinitely just like any other Forester MultiFlora object.
- Windows and Mac OS X.
- Cinema 4D R18 and above.
- Latest version of Forester.
- Compatible with the Standard and Physical Cinema 4D render engines, along with the following third-party Cinema 4D renderers: Arnold, Corona, Redshift, Vray 5, and Octane.
iRender is a GPU-Acceleration Cloud Rendering Service for Multi-GPU Rendering with Powerful Render Nodes: 2/4/6x RTX 3090/3080/2080Ti, provides high computing performance on the model of IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service). Cinema 4D users can easily choose their machine configuration from recommended system requirements to high-end options, which suit all your project demands and will speed up your rendering process many times.
- Single and Multi-GPU servers:1/2/4/6x RTX 3090/3080/2080Ti. Especially, NVIDIA RTX 3090 – the most powerful graphic card.
- 10/24 GB vRAM capacity, fitting to the heaviest images and scenes. NVLink/SLI requested for bigger vRAM.
- A RAM capacity of 128/256 GB.
- Storage (NVMe SSD): 512GB/1TB.
- Intel Xeon W-2245 or AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX CPU with a high clock speed of 3.90GHz.
Let’s see rendering tests with Cinema 4D and different renderers on server 5 (4x RTX 3090) at iRender:
iRender provides high-end configuration at a reasonable price. You can see that iRender’s package always costs much cheaper than packages of other render farms (in performance/price ratio). Moreover, iRender’s clients will enjoy many attractive promotions and discounts. For example, this October, we offer a promotion for new users and discounted prices for many servers, users will take advantage of these to level up their renders.
For Cinema 4D users with large-scale projects, iRender offers the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly Fixed Rental packages, which saves you up to 50% of the cost compared to the hourly rental. Please read more about our Fixed rental service here.
To reduce the rendering time more, users can run multiple machines at the same time. You can use the machines separately or connect them by using Thinkbox Deadline. iRender provides Redshift license, Thinkbox Deadline license for Prime customers. Users, who recharge enough points to become Prime customers, will not only be able to use Redshift/Thinkbox Deadline license without usage or maintenance costs, but also enjoy a lot of exclusive benefits.
In addition, users can request extra services to make full use of iRender servers, for example, expand image threshold, increase the size of network drive (Z:), open port, install NVLink, and change hardware. Surprisingly, you get all of these services for free.
Forester plugin helps you to create a natural environment easier and faster. Also, with all the outstanding advantages mentioned above, you must have found yourself the perfect choice for Cinema 4D and Forester projects. We believe together with Cinema 4D and this plugin, our GPU accelerated servers will bring greater interactivity and speed to artist workflows. What users can get from iRender is not only the best quality products but also the high security and the most comfortable render time.
So, do not hesitate anymore, let’s REGISTER for an account today to get a FREE COUPON to experience our service and reach a new level of cloud rendering.
Thank you & Happy Rendering!
