Just out of curiosity, will version 3 be able to use the GPU's processing power?

No, we will not be utilizing GPU resources for primary rendering for Terragen 3.

No, TG's architecture doesn't lend itself very easily to be handled by the GPU.
TG would need to hop on the raytracing bandwagon in order to benefit of the GPU rendering (r?)evolution which is happening now.
In order to do so the software will need to be turned inside out and upside down. Frankly I don't see that happen soon.

@TU - I was kidding around.  All I care about is the release, which is what I hope Oshyan understood.   ???

lol! I just noticed on the T3 page, that if you click on an image, and then when the image is large, quickly resize the main browser window, then the image will dance. I like it.

Man Im a dork.

P.S.
Can we get a hard date yet? Please? Or something to drool over. This is agonizing! I almost wish you had not told us it was on the way. I feel like a little kid waiting for gifts on christmas, but mom said I have to wait until after the meal. I hate it! GIVE ME GIVE ME GIVE ME!

Sorry, Im ashamed of my self for this latest outburst of my freak. I know it, I'll admit it, I'm an obsessive internet weirdo. But I like it.

The funny part is Im not even a real person. I'm a software bot posting pre-programed statements randomly on the internet. But I have an error message and cant seem to leave this forum. Its troubling to say the least.

The million dollar question is: can you use a TG2 scene in TG3?  And import all other data, populations, camera position, etc?

Along with this question, will TG2 run side-by-side with TG3 and if yes, would there be a licensing problem doing that with TG3 an upgrade (instead of a full product)?
