I hear great things about Forest Pack, but my main concern is about the quality of the 3d trees. I have to do an ainmation of a city landscape, about a few hundred metres square with maybe 100 trees or so, so we're not really talking of a forest, but I am looking at this as a way of getting render times down.
The camera will be passing quite close to trees so they need to look good.
I have downloaded the lite version but it only seems possible to use billboards. Is there a way of testing this, and will it be much quicker that rendering 100 VrayProxy trees with 1 million polys each anyway?
