A new scattering extension for SketchUp is coming soon – Skatter. There is only a video showing what is an alpha preview of what seems to be a very capable scattering plugin… kind of Forest Pack inside SketchUp with render engine instancing / proxy support (so it seems with Thea Render being used on the preview). Pretty cool and I look forward to see more and have a go at it!
Skatter has been already released!
Here’s the video and some screenshots from it below. Would love to know what you think of this?
Skatter supports ‘only’ V-Ray, Thea, and Kerkythea. The Bloom Unit guys are looking into it apparently, and there are plans to get Octane, Indigo and Maxwell Render on board as well. Sounds exciting and relevant to many SketchUp users.
