Thanks Planetside for your amazing software and allowing me to put this video together.

Wow, this is really impressive. So the movie was rendered in TG?

Andrew March

Nope, doesn't look that way at all. If I had to hazzard a guess it seems that very little if anything is terragen and it looks more like someone pluging thier services. You see this on a lot of art forums recently. People claiming Art when really all they are doing is spamming and advertising thier products.

Hi Andrew,

Check out this thread:

I particularly liked this video:

Impressive stuff.

I would be interested to know if the video posted was done in the same way, I hope so :-).

Regards,

Hi All,

Thanks for the feedback.
First of all Andrew, I'm not trying to sell our services. I'm just showing how TG is being used in the geospatial community to generate realistic terrain using real GIS data.
In the latest video, we are not using heightfield shaders with an image map draped on to of it like the previous video we made.
We used directly imported textured .obj. TG is used for camera movements, sun effects and water level rise.

I can understand a bit of skepticism, but in truth I think this speaks to the versatility of Terragen that the results produced really look so different to most other work shown here (and hence the questioning over where/how TG is being used in this). So, nicely done! And glad to see that TG has become such a key part of your workflow.

Very cool! And Im very glad for this thread. I was looking for your others posts for my reference catalog. The post you made before is the reason I started learning how to use sat data.

Havn't got results like yours, or even close. But at least I know that it can somehow be done.
It has been eaten.

Excellent.  I recognized the construction site from somewhere else, but I don't remember where.  Was it a DAZ model?
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

The construction site is the New Royal Adelaide Hospital. All the 3D models are generated from aerial photogrammetry. They are not already pre-made objects.

Thank you.  I know where I saw it (something very close to it) - it was the CryEngine upcoming release and it was beautiful.  What I'm wondering is if they used the same site for their demo.  Great work, by the way!!   ;D
