Forester supports natively all major Cinema 4D third party renderers including Vray, Octane, Arnold and more

Distribution Paterns

Clone distribution can be divided according to a controllable noise pattern. Watch Video

Level Of Detail

Clones can be distributed sequentially to a center thus creating a Level of Detail distribution . Watch Video

Linear Distribution
