Moodflow, please tell me that's some kind of photo.

Actually its not.  Its an image I created a few months ago, but abandoned due to crashes past a certain point.   I am probably going to re-render it with this new update, so we'll see.

Transparency mask
« Reply #18 on: September 17, 2007, 08:35:00 AM »
A while ago I offered a workaround to fake transparent water.
It is not perfect and needs some tweaks.

I'll put the link here, only: http://forums.planetside.co.uk/index.php?topic=2188.msg21304#msg21304

Have fun,
Volker

Sonshine777 has made in April a better version for transparent water, that I missed so far, but you should not: http://forums.planetside.co.uk/index.php?topic=1391.0

Oh geez.  You've got to be kidding me.  Downloaded.

Thank you.   ;D
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

the control node
« Reply #22 on: January 20, 2009, 05:37:26 PM »
I plugged a powerfractal into two twist and shears with opposite values and merged them, except I used the original power fractal again as the control node. It was a nice terrain, it twisted one way on the low sections, and the other on the high sections. It would probably render faster if I cloned the power fractal and removed a lot of the octaves from it and then used it to control the merge shader, but it works and looks pretty. I love the idea of subtracting the terrains, that's a stroke of brilliance, what gave you the idea of doing that?

Well, the merge shader has multiple options - and I went for the trial-and-failure-way.

I am glad that you like it. And yes, it is not the fastest kind of terrain, and you may discover that the atmosphere settings are a bit difficult, as the terrains' scales are a bit off.

Still - most of my terrains have a merge shader included.

Regards,
Volker
