e-on software, the leader in Digital Nature solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Carbon Scatter 2, the company’s advanced instancing plugin for 3ds Max, Maya and Cinema 4D.
Derived from e-on’s acclaimed EcoSystem technology, Carbon Scatter 2 is the easiest and most straightforward solution for creating complex and detailed populations using the native instancing technologies of the host application.
New super-fast population algorithms can create over 1 million instances per second. Carbon Scatter 2 adds the ability to populate objects all around in 360 degrees, allowing stacking of instances. The program makes use of the native displaying technologies of your application (point-cloud rendering, Nitrous interactive rendering, etc). This release also allows you to use curves to define population areas, which, added to Carbon Scatter’s interactive painting tools and powerful fractal rules, gives you unprecedented control over your instancing.
By adding the optional Carbon Scatter Botanical module, users can even edit and create their own plant species directly, for even greater variability and control.
