In the second part, we focus in-depth on iToo Software’s popular scattering plugin Forest Pack Pro. After explaining the key principles, we go well beyond the basics to explore advanced techniques – including how they can be applied for common uses such as ground cover, vehicles, foliage, crowds, rocks and more. We’ll also touch upon using Forest Pack for animation, optimising scenes for VR renders, and how to extend the built-in feature set.
Both parts are taught through a series of discrete exercises with opportunities to adapt what’s been learned for a provided scene. Our approach is to focus on knowledge of the underlying principles rather than specific techniques. By understanding how the plugins work, students who complete the course can leave ready to tackle almost any project they encounter.
