What's New in Forest Pack Pro 6.1.2




Forest Pack Pro 6.1.2 is the latest update of the plugin, released on September 18, 2018. It includes several changes based on feedback from users, as well as some handy new features.


New Features




  • Forest Sets: a new helper plugin that allows you to create a container of objects to use for areas, scatter items, surface, or references. You can update it automatically using the contents of a layer.



  • Linked Areas: a new option that allows you to reference areas found in another Forest Pack object to link together multiple scatters. You can combine Forest Sets and linked areas to create huge flexible interlinked ecosystems.



  • Use Areas in Surface UV Mode: a new option that allows you to use spline, object, and other areas in combination with UV surfaces by projecting them along one of three axes using a new Axis parameter.



  • Forest Effects Improvements: a new feature that allows you to create advanced scattering rules using the Forest Effects system, which now supports spline objects and material IDs.



  • New Forest Effect Presets: a new collection of built-in presets that take advantage of the new Forest Effects features without writing a single expression.



  • Filter Forest Effects: a new feature that allows you to filter Forest Effects so that they only apply to a subset of the geometry list, limiting the results to individual types of plants manipulated using the powerful effects system.



  • Autumn Leaves Library: a new library of high quality photo-scanned leaves, logically organised by color and supplied as individual leaves and patches.



  • Randomise Position in Path Mode: a new feature that allows you to shuffle the position of objects while still following the spline when using path distribution mode.



  • Scatter Linked Hierarchies: a new feature that allows you to scatter linked objects, maintaining their hierarchy. Hierarchical objects can be animated, and Forest Pack can even randomise and control playback just like a normal mesh!



  • Easier Error Identification: a new feature that allows you to identify issues at a glance. Forest Pack's icon now changes color depending on three different error states.



Improvements and Fixes




  • It is now possible to assign a surface keeping the item's Z position when using Distribution->Path, Reference and Particle modes.



  • Items are now oriented correctly when using Distribution->PFlow->Align.



  • Fixed errors in Lister when there are duplicated object names.



  • Distribution->Path Distance is now set by default to 1 meter, regardless of the scene's unit.



  • "Surface->Custom Edit->Link to Surface" has been renamed to "Non Image->Link to Surface", since this parameter is used both in Custom Edit and Non-Image Distribution modes.



  • "Color by Texture" now works in Custom Edit mode if "Surface ->Link to Surface" is enabled.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" in Custom Edit mode.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Diffuse slot.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Opacity slot.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Bump slot.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Displacement slot.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Self-Illumination slot.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Reflection slot.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Refraction slot.



  • Fixed a crash when using "Color by Texture" with a Forest Color map in the Specular slot.



  • Fixed an error when rendering with V-Ray GPU and using "Color by Texture".



  • Fixed an error when rendering with Corona and using "Color by Texture".



  • Fixed an error when rendering with Arnold and using "Color by Texture".



  • Fixed an error when rendering with FStorm and using "Color by Texture".



  • Fixed an error when rendering with Redshift and using "Color by Texture".
