Quote from: Stormlord on August 18, 2017, 07:44:16 AMHow do you make these faint small tiny details (the black dust structures) in your picture "Hulakara-Minkares nebula" ? I can't figure that out..., how do you make them? Do you render them in Terragen (so is it just a question of settings) or do you stamp them later on into the rendering via Photoshop? Hmmmhhh....
Quote from: Stormlord on August 18, 2017, 07:44:16 AMIf you like to render your own stars in3DsMax, I could send you my Max-File. It is made in 3dsMax 2009. If you have the program, you could use my setup to render your own stars in a big resolution and excellent quality. This would provide you also the Alpha Channel, so you will be ready for masking. Just mail me, I can send you my file if you like... :-)

Quote from: luvsmuzik on August 18, 2017, 10:10:49 AMI have been wondering how one would assign such masks in Terragen to a population of a single star object. There seems to be no way at the moment to assign a single value for each star dot in the mask. (Meaning you might get a cluster instead of a single star)Rendering your clouds then layering post render would certainly be faster and leaves you with many more options for sure.

Quote from: Denis Sirenko on August 23, 2017, 06:42:23 AMThis is a good nebula. As for me it most difficult and interesting of those that you sent before. Good colors too.

The nebula will become more tangible. That is, you can use the same nebula as a mask, but corrected by the curves.But some stars are still piercing. This problem was solved by dividing the star field into two or more layers. For example one layer in front of the nebula, the other behind it.
