Terragen expert needed.....
« on: June 18, 2007, 04:32:20 PM »
We need a flyby animation of a real island.
If anyone has a good terrain/atmosphere etc. for a docu project I'm
working on, I'd appreciate it (payment negotiable).

Wanted to initially do this myself, but am strapped for time.

Would also involve getting a map of an island and "convert" it into a
Terragen file.

Either Terragen or Terragen 2.

Any takers?

What is your time frame?  I won't have access to a Terragen-capable computer until July 8th (I'm on vacation right now) but I have got some experience doing skybox work for a game company.  You can view my profile at http://www.ashundar.com/plug.php?e=coppermine&album=528&page=1.  Starting on the 8th I can dive right in.  Let me know if this works for you :).

That should be fine; timeframe would allow, say, August completion.

We can use our computer for rendering the animation by the way. It's more the terrain and world files we'll need help on.

Terragen 2 with trees (on the island) and some awesome water would be sweet.
Oh, and [roughly] converting a map & satellite image (both 2d) into a Terragen file.

Cheers,
Marius

hmm, mind stating what the final render size is? it might take a while to render an animation. Just putting that forward.

The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

LOL, yeah; I can spend a few weeks on rendering, three maybe, but if it takes longer, then so be it.
Reso is PAL widescreen: 1024x576.

Sounds good, Marius.  If you want to go forward with this, maybe we can start chatting through email.  My address is palmcarp@yahoo.com.  I'm also getting a new MacBook Pro (2.2Ghz dual core) around the time I get back, so I can probably help with the rendering if need be.
