QuoteFirst of all there is a VERY important aspect of the "smoothing effect" feature which should be explained in order to make good use of this clipfile.The intersect underlying type for this snow is set to "displacement intersection" and Terragen 2 automatically enables the smoothing effect function in the surface layer node.The smoothing function does what it says, basically. The displaced features by intersect underlying will be smoothed.Smoothing set at 1 will result in almost completely smooth displaced surfaces.When you reduce the smoothing more details from below the snowsurface will appear.Here comes the important aspect: the details seen by reducing the smoothing are the details of your underlying terrain BEFORE the last "compute terrain/normal".
