Some very interesting and cool results in there. I like the stone population test a lot actually. Curious to see if you find ways to use some of these in an actual scene...

Thanks Oshyan.
Still testing. I will look into populations later ones again probably.

There is i think a way to make strata a little different and easier-vertical ones especially.
But still working on it and not sure it will work as i want.
If i can it get to work i might share it later.
Curious what others,especially the blue node users could do with it.

Kadri, try using the displacement to scalar after some displacements and strata, then warp and rotate mixes..... and use to displace.

Thanks Ulco. I had not much luck in that way. Worth another go later.

But what i used doesn't involve any strata node (some scenes before had strata nodes but that was different) and in general it is very easy.
A basic setup at least.
Hard part is to make it look nice.
Testing since 1 month with nearly the same nodes (It is amazing how many different looks you can get with so few nodes).
I am right now sick of those many tests.

I am just rendering two different scenes of the basic setup.
It looks more suited for far away stuff at first, but i will share it and see what you all can add to this.

Now it's time to work on the actual image.

This image isn't a test any more, but a WIP.
Very close to the final at last. I will maybe move the POV a little more to the left side.

I like it very much, though hopefully you have plans for the plain ground to change. This image reminds me a lot of some recent images from Iceland I saw of a very cool basalt formation.

Thanks Oshyan.
The ground will be water probably. Have to do some objects for the scene.
Still a lot to do.

It's kind of mesmerizing.
