Another small update. This is a small part of the last scene.
Still WIP. I am rendering a little different and bigger animation of this just now.
Full Terragen work only.

Thanks.
Still trying a more natural look.Whatever that means when you try to peel(?) a moon like an onion :)

126 frames rendered already from the supposed more natural look from a 200 frames animation.
As i look at the darker and more complex surfaced version i think i have to change it ones more.
The scene in that i will comp this one is already complex. A simpler surfaced moon animation might be better probably.
At least this one renders very fast. Only 4-5 minutes per frame. In Terragen standards lightning fast :)

Kadri


Hmm...need some other thoughts abut this.
I think it is -kinda- more real looking but it doesn't look so aesthetic to me except the beginning and end frames probably.

Rendering a new big version that is a little more similar to the first one. Hope it works.

Dune

It's cool, but what's the idea behind it?

AP

A very interesting effect. As if it is being colonized and transformed into some high-tech surface?

Chris and Ulco i can't say much without giving away the story, not that the story is very complicated or what.
But Chris you are kinda close. The ground of the alien moon is subtracted layer by layer.
This will be a part of another render comped together. So it isn't the final look quite.

The breaking away effect does look more improved in the latest video.

Yes the textures are simpler and lighter, probably because of this and a little postwork.

Dune

Looks good. It also looks like the breakdown is by squarish blocks, almost manmade deterioration of the moon.
