E-on Software, maker of the Digital Nature solutions, has announced the upcoming availability of Carbon Scatter, a set of plug-ins that will allow the creation of complex populations using the native instancing technologies of leading DCC applications.

The Carbon Scatter plug-ins will integrate e-on’s EcoSystem algorithms directly into the host applications, allowing users to populate native scenes with millions of instances, and render them with their renderer of choice. The actual release date of Carbon Scatter hasn’t been determined.

E-on is looking for talented 3ds Max users willing to take part in the beta testing of Carbon Scatter for the mental ray and V-Ray renderers. No knowledge of Vue is required in order to become a qualified beta tester. However, candidates must possess the following qualities: persistence, imagination, and a desire to influence the final product, time, and of course testers should be proficient with 3ds Max and either the V-Ray or Mental Ray renderers. Artists interested in beta-testing Carbon Scatter, should send an e-mail with samples and a description of their work to carbonscatter@e-onsoftware.com .
