well, I tried to use Voronoi cells -criss-crossing eachother  as a displace, and it looks amazing!
Also , this cliff shader I just put together makes the base terragen terrain look great:)

Many of your images are very interesting. My preferences go for clouds 12-15 and wm dessert 12.  :)

One question not answered is about warping. I noticed in your network you use the 'get position', replace that by a 'get position in texture' and you can warp.

Ah Thank you! It would've taken forever to find that out jut by myself!

Ive studied geology, and now I'm a freelance artist so Terragen is a dream come true really :P

A few more renders. The merge highest thing with the fake stones sadly messed up thing and the typical 30 minute render became 6 hours. I'm organising the node network in that scene right now with groups .

One better as the next... very good results!

By the way your images do look a little on the dark side (no pun intended).
Is there any postwork?

ON some of them yes-I have to convert the tiff files to jpg-s so I can psot them here.But mostly brightening...I use terragen's tone map sliders -I usually put the contrast higher than 0.5 and I lower the gamma to 2, or 1.9, as I like using denser haze- it gives a nice light effect, and makes most of the pictures more realistic but also more washed out colours.

Maybe my big monitor is a little bright compared to others. My laptop was dark and a bit bluish...So I know that sometimes what looks nice here, it looks dark or over-saturated etc on another computer.

My monitor is bright too i think. But still your images look dark to me. Subjective too of course.
I export as EXR and postwork on them later mostly.

hmm, I will try to render slightly brighter images then. Also is there a way to save EXR files in the demo version?

I organised the Mossy rock scene nodes. I mean kind of.:)

Hmm not sure but only the professional version i think:

Don't know if there is a difference in the demo version or free version.
Have a look at the render saving options.

Oh well, not even the creative version is enough for that. Well I don't think I can afford buying the professional version for...just my art stuff.
