Carbon Scatter arrives on Mac, supports Cinema 4D, Maya

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Fri July 8, 2011

App generates nature effects, animated instances

E-on updated its native instancing software, Carbon Scatter, adding Mac-platform compatibility with Maya and Cinema 4D. The software creates complex, detailed populations, generating nature effects with advanced instancing controls. It has EcoSystem technology, SolidGrowthCS plants, non-overlapping instances and animation with layering systems and interactive instance painting.

The software supports multi-threaded rendering, using as many processor cores as the user has available, with supports for V-Rays or MentalRays.

Having already worked with Windows-only 3ds Max, it now is compatible with Cinema 4D 32/64-bit R11.5/R12 and Maya 32/64-bit 2009-2012 on Mac systems. It requires Mac OS X 10.5, a 2GHz Intel chip and at least 1GB of RAM. Preferred specs are Mac OS X 10.6, Core i7 or Mac Pro chips, an OpenGL video card and 4GB of RAM.

The app can be purchased for use with a single compatible application, as Carbon Scatter Single for $200; or all compatible applications, as Carbon Scatter Multi for $300. The Multi edition can be obtained with 100 SolidGrowthCS plants instead of the standard 8, in Carbon Scatter Multi-CE, for $400.
