Rendering a Canyon
« on: December 25, 2006, 12:16:57 AM »
Someone asked about how to render a river at the bottom of a canyon so I thought I'd have a go with some DEMs for the Grand Canyon

I have loads of DEM files :) about 800Mb worth - I really should get round to doing some renders off them I think at some point

I prefer using DEMs because they represent a place that really exists on earth, it is fun to try to replicate the real-world landscape Which is very possible with TG2 (I also have about 100 DEMs)

I find that playing with DEMs is only interesting if you actually know the place that the DEMs are of. My favourite DEM features Tenerife - the shape of Tenerife is unmistakable...

Tenerife?
That sounds interesting :)
Would you mind sharing some nice DEM's? (upload some to rapidshare/fileupload/whatsoever)
That would be really great  ;D

Sorry about the link - it seems that you can't link words on these forums to anything other than the hyper text transfer protocol...Just pasting in the URL is the only way to link the Tenerife file:

There are some DEM-sourced terrains over at Ashundar as well, in the Files area. http://www.ashundar.com/list.php?c=ter
