Forester For Cinema 4D
Forester Oak Tree

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.

Following is a brief summary of the main features that each one of these modules provides. For a more detailed explanation, please visit the video documentation page for Forester for Cinema 4D. On that page, you will find an in-depth video detailing every parameter inside Forester.
