The road cracking is very cool - will it show up in the actual animation though?

It will; it is a part of the terrain and my thought is to have the camera walk or drive at about eye level, so it will be visible.  I'm going to increase the contrast of color and add some gravel and dirt too, plus some puddles here and there in the low spots so it will stand out more.

I do, thanks.  I have my keyframes all ready to upload (actually had it ready for the first June deadline), so now I'm just having some fun with the scene.

That looks incredibly good. Love the "tar seams" that are reflecting sunlight! A very nice touch.

That's a remarkably realistic urban environment. Especially in a landscape rendering app. ;D

Rural environment:  Too much corn for it to be urban.  ::) ;D

I really love what you have done here with all the elements.  I really hope that you render out and share a few scenes from this project at higher resolution so we can really see all the details that went into it.  Your whole scene makes my attempts (http://forums.planetside.co.uk/index.php?topic=8095.0) at recreating a large area seem positively crude in comparison.

Here's a new render from a different vantage point.

As for your attempt Ryan, that scene of your was partly my inspiration for what I'm doing here:  years ago I did some similar to that, then I saw yours and thought mine "positively crude in comparison."  So we are leap-frogging.  I'm continuing to develop mine, lets see where yours goes too.  You have a great start there, just take each element and refine it

This continues to surprise and fascinate me. Though you didn't win 1st prize in the contest, I hope you'll still consider animating this.
