Hello Everyone

We released a brand new version of our scattering plugin last Monday: Scatter5.2! This update introduces important new features and a long list of improvements! The update is free to all current owners of Scatter5 of course, and can be downloaded on your blendermarket user page.

Below are a few of the most important changes and additions:

A new volumetric distribution method will be waiting for you in the distribution method list.

A new tangent alignment option is available: Align to closest boundary edges, extremely useful for hard-surface scatters, such as greebles or cities!

We added a new "relax" brush to our manual distribution mode.

There is a brand new "Stable deform" distribution method. Resistant to any kind of deformation, this method is required when distributing points on animated mesh.

More new features:

  • By popular request, our wind features are now seamlessly loopable. It will automatically adapt to your clip length, no need to adjust anything.
  • We added the "Master Seed" slider. This seed has an influence on every other Scatter5 seeds, changing this seed is great for iterating over all possible environment designs quickly.
  • Most Scatter5 properties can now be animated with keyframes or drivers.
  • Our proximity "Remove Near" feature now has an option to consider volumes as well.
  • A new 'Per Edge' distribution method is now available.

The full list of changes is accessible here.

All features we offer in our plugin are elegantly presented in our online manual. Curious? Please take a look.

Scatter5 is the #1 scattering tool set currently available for blender, it is designed by and for professionals looking for a streamlined, complete, and polished workflow. Scatter5.2 is available on the Blender Market for individuals or studios.
