<Da_Elf > Good point and suggestions ! Normal Map shader sounds Great !I just started testing Terragen BETA this week . . . The skies are very impressive, I will be doing a lot of render tests within the next 3 months.

I think there always can be a combination of packages/software you can use, and take the best out of one to get the job done. I use PS, Maya , Painter, Zbrush, and now Terragen and Vue 5 . . . It is always good to experiment with new software, and people will eventually see more and more of these type of next-gen packages joining the market to give many artists the option to come up with new and faster ways to create digital set/environments.

I remember when ZBrush first came out, not many people knew about it, including my self . . . .People were like " No way you can do that . . . " look at it now, most VFX studios are using it, and many 3D modelers . . . . The new version that they are coming up with will allow you to go up to over 10 milion polygons. Who would have thought that you will have digital clay one day for Organic Modeling . . . . I feel the same way with Terragen and Vue like programs that will be seen more and more in the near future in major Hollywood movies . . . .

I am doing many test renders, and here is a very early work in progress all 3D Matte painting scene I created using Terragen 2 BETA (There is no Photoshop touch up in this render) Originally rendered at 4000 pixels (4k) This small compressed jpg version does not do justice . . . the highres version has GREAT detail ! ! !

It took a while trying to figure out many shader, atmosphere, fog, sky, lighting, and terrain (list goes on: ) attributes, and hours of tweaking to get certain things looking convincing . . but again this is just a very early stage WIP . . straight 3D render

I will add various 3D geometry into the scene that I am building in Maya and I will be then adding highres detail in Zbrush. After that I will create projections in Maya, and create a 3D camera move for this scene. I'll share the quicktime with everyone here

More to come . . . .

************************************************** *********


So go check this out guys, some newer images in the gallery of Terragen 2. Like I mentioned this in my earlier posts here , being one of the beta testers for Terragen's new version, there is a team of us trying many new things within the software. I can't wait until it will be become available for the public, and people will start seeing what this powerful program is capable of doing . . . Also the current version is $99 USD . . . Now that's a bargain !

Below image rendered using Terragen 2 with no touch up is just another GREAT example of this tehnology showcasing the potential 3D terrains and how quickly it is growing, and getting closer to have very convincing results. Things will take time, there will be a lot of hard work, tweaking, and trying . . but the effort in trying new ways and techniques will pay off in the long run . . . A huge thanks again to Matt for writing the code for this program, and still developing it further every day !




Here is the link to the website that has this image below created by Matt

I understand that ILM is going to be using Vue a lot from now on. I think mathematically generated environment renders are helpful to start from. Just can't leave them that way :wink:

Another example of Terragen 2 technology. Below is a 3D render by Christianfly with no touch up's . . . you can still see some artifacts, and stretch, but it is fairly impressive as is . .
