You can make any size image map (16 bit for much less stepping) and relocate and resize in TG by transform shader. Resolution must be taken into account of course. The ditch around the camp is a 1x1K greyscale (which is too big, but who cares) 8-bits, because it's only a meter deep. 256 grey tones means 1m divided by 256 = 4mm per step, you don't see that. Even it it were 10m deep you wouldn't see the stepping in 8-bit if you add some fractal.

Ditch is ditched anyway, it's a prickly hedge now.

Thanks Ulco, copied into my Ulco Tips folder. Makes sense...I often forget the utility of the Transform shader in all matters....

Very nice and natural. Love the little details like the guy in the boat  :D

These renders of you should be done in Megapixel resolution, Ulco - and 360° Panorama... Then I would sit inside and explore the whole day :)

Masterful work again Ulco!

Very nice. Enjoying the color realism.

Thanks guys. I just heard the book (local archaeology, many images, but in Dutch/Flamish) will be published in September. For those interested I'll post a website.

Up to render them big now....

Ha ha, language doesn't matter, we just look at the pictures anyway. :) Very nice, scale is terrific, but not too minute. :)

Realism here is really tops Ulco, well done

Well, this project has been finalized and here's some info about it (scroll down one click for some images): https://archeologie-kerkhove.be/
And here: http://www.snoeckpublishers.be/usite/snoeckpub_nlbe/index.asp?p=875&i=627
And here's a brochure: https://archeologiekerkhove.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/schelde-stroom-in-verandering.pdf
I'm afraid it's all in Dutch.
