Carbon Scatter is the easiest and most straightforward solution for creating complex and detailed populations using the native instancing technologies of 3ds Max, Maya and Cinema4D.

Carbon Scatter integrates e-on's patented EcoSystem™ algorithms directly inside the end user's favorite 3D application, allowing the population of native scenes with millions of instances and rendering them with the user's renderer of choice.

  • Saving scenes and network rendering is disabled.
  • The Carbon Scatter Trial Version cannot be used for commercial work. Once installed, the Trial Version will work for 30 days.
