What’s New in RailClone 5?

RailClone 5, the most powerful parametric modeling tool for 3ds Max, delivers a wide range of innovative new features like banking, support for lights, proxy cache, and much more.
Because of Parametric Modelling, RailClone has also found a place in many archviz and VFX pipelines as an invaluable scene layout tool.

Here is a summary of RailClone 5’s headline features:

 

Proxy Cache.
Optimize scenes that contain complex RailClone styles using the new Proxy Cache system. Bake any RailClone object without destroying instancing or losing access to advanced features. Caches can be stored in the scene or exported to a separate file to prevent scene file bloat and make them easy to reuse.

Support for lights and other non-geometric objects .
Distribute non-geometric objects including lights and VDB volumes. Combine them with geometry for hybrid styles and even use RailClone Colour to randomise light tints and add variations.

Support for groups .
Precompose objects into standard Max groups and use them as segments that can be any combination of geometric objects, non-geometric objects like lights and VDBs, or both.

Intuitive Banking Control .
Control the banking angle of geometry at any point along a spline by adding easy-to-manipulate gizmos via the RC Spline modifier. By simply rotating a marker, the geometry twists, turns, and smoothly deforms to match.

New evenly Modes .
Distribute geometry at regularly spaced intervals along a spline with more control than ever before. Force an odd number of intervals, an even number, or simply use the original mode where the number is determined by best fit.

Drop-down lists .
Make it easier for users to select geometry, change materials, turn on and off elements, or control pretty much any attribute of a graph that takes a numeric input using easy to understand text-based drop-down lists.

Compatible with Arnold 7.
Use the latest version of Autodesk’s built-in rendering engine, as well as the latest releases of V-Ray and Corona.

Control generators using marker data .
Use markers to control several Generator parameters when using Extend X/Y Size to area mode. Where multiple markers are found on a spline, the value is taken from the first marker found.

Limit by material ID Lists .
Limit distribution to parts of a split using material IDs. RailClone 5 introduces a text input to the ID list so that you can select a list of IDs or target a range.
