FP for 3dsmax 2018
« on: April 18, 2017, 05:20:10 PM »
Hi there!

i hope this is not a repost, but since there is finally a working even number release (well thats what i hope) of 3dsmax,
 i would be interested if you release a version of FP working in 3dsmax 2018 soon;)

Since vray and FP are my only major plugins that i use it would be interesting (gotta renew my 2 subscriptions then)

Best regards, and seeya, daniel! ;)

Hi Daniel

We have plans to release Forest Pack (& RailClone) with 3ds Max 2018 support soon after V-Ray for Max 2018 becomes available. We'll keep our users posted about this topic in the announcements thread. I should add, that because Forest Pack has many dependencies on the mental ray libraries (which are now not included in the 3ds Max 2018), it needs to be treated very carefully. Thanks for understanding.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Many Thanks,

Paul

Thanks for the Infos!
Thats Double Impact ;)
 I guess the 2017 Version won't work.. so i sadly have to live with that beta 3dsmax 2017 longer than i wanted ;) (2017 is a perfect example of the Autodesk rule of "uneven releases are always junk").

Once you got a beta or something i will directly renew my subscription.. Cant wait to get it running.
Seeya and thanks! Daniel ;)

As usual, we'll release a beta version before May (using V-Ray nightlies for Max 1018).
But i cannot give an estimate date yet. We are waiting our licenses for Max 2018, and must decide what to do with Mental Ray, besides other things.

We continue working on it. We had to rework everything was done, because a last-minute change of the compiler version.

Hopefully beta versions should be ready in next days.

Forest beta is already completed, but RailClone requires a few changes more... not specifically related with Max 2018, but as part of the V3 beta process.
Our idea was to release both simultaneously, but if RC is delayed we would publish Forest first.

Oh would be so great if you could release fp as fast as possible, really really need it.
I dont have RC so its really annoying that I have to wait for it to dl the fp beta...
