Indeed. The cloud pack I was working on will have to wait. I want to use the new shader for this pack. I still want to do a Mesocyclone hopefully soon. Very tall Cumulonimbus is on the list as well.

The shaping of clouds is still very hard.

That is not very reassuring, however I am not going down that easily.

This is a fair point actually. Someone suggested to me recently how awesome it would be if we could say fill a teddy bear-shaped model with cloud, hiding the model so we get a teddy bear cloud. Both of us could do it in other software within an hour or so, but getting that effect in TG itself could be handy.

Some simple box modeling tool would do the trick 😉

Hi Oshyan,

Thought I would log on for any updates as to GA for TG4 - and realised that we are almost at the end of Q2 (assuming Jan to Dec). What is the current status of the update?

Thanks.

Jonathan.

Sorry folks, we've been in "heads down, get 'er done" mode. Lots to do. We're still planning to squeeze a release into June, working on a new website, etc. I know I said this a few weeks ago, but we'll have another terragen4.com "features" post soon, followed a little later with more info on the release. Soooon! I promise. :)

How many computer cores and threads will T4 handle?

Theoretically unlimited. Above 32 threads you start to see diminishing returns of performance, but as long as you're working with physical (non-hyperthread) cores, you should see increasing performance past 32 threads.

Thank You, Oshyan. I have 2 Dual Hex Core Computers, so of course that is 12 cores per machine with 24 total threads each.
As you say cores more important than threads is true of many software that I have, but some will not recognize past 4 cores and thus the reason I asked.
Looks like you accommodated for that nicely! 
Thanks!!

The "Warp speed" post was what I was referring to at that time. But of course as we near the end of June we'll be posting an update, and you'll all get to try out TG4 yourself soon...
