We presented last on the Friday night and everyone’s mind was already on Pizza so we woke them up with Squatty Potty. The rest came out pretty well, but we noticed that no one had ice cream for dessert that night :)

We have identified a crashing bug that affects Forest Pack 5.0.5 and RailClone 2.6.0 with Max 2011 and 2012 64 bit. The bug occurs using the Style Editor in RailClone, Forest Effects in Forest, or the lister with any of the plugins.

From Thursday, 31-May-2012 to Friday, 01-June-2012 in Utrech. iToosoft’s first ever public appearance couldn’t have a better setting: The Florin Pub at Utrecht - an outstanding venue for the annual End User Event held in Holland. Although the company was formed in 1998, it took awhile to start showing our plugins to a specialised audience. “Creating Vegetation and other things” and “Self-constructing objects without limits” were the titles of these inaugural talks in which we demonstrated Forest Pack and RailClone in front of a live audience of 3D artists for the first time.
