This will be a contest for yourself; one about choosing  ;)

Yep! A few more weeks and then they can lock me up in a mental institution.

Look what I found on Streetview! [attach=1]

You're always driving random Spanish roads when the weather is crappy in The Netherlands, Andy? :P

So that you know it: They're not random but selected for their proximity to a coast!!  :P  And it's what I often do while waiting for a render to finish...  ;D

Thanks! The waterfall still requires a lot of work. I will only use it if it is credible.


very good work rene, BTW I hope you still go forward with the waterfall. I see a win entrance in that one...
Hmmm, what version of Terragen use god?

René

Cliffs just beg for a waterfall. If I can pull it off there certainly will be one or more waterfalls.

Another set-up with tons of flaws.

René

Another attempt at creating a waterfall.  :-\

Dune

And quite a succesful one! You probably also used a plane conforming to the side of the rock, with some fractal displacements, and perhaps a no-RT reflection. Though reflection is probably not even needed, just some translucency. Top and bottom are always the hardest, but this looks really good.

I have used a card object with three displacement maps, one for the horizontal rounding, and one for the lateral rounding so that the card gets a bend. On top of that, there is a displacement for the water structure. And of course a transparency map.
The problem is that I constantly have to go back and forth between Photoshop and Terragen and that the smallest differences in gray value have major consequences.
What I don't manage to achieve is the softness of the edges of the waterfall because the transparency has only two values, transparent or not, so no soft transition. I have tried to solve this by building up a grid of very small dots in the transition.
It is therefore basically a proof of concept

One of the best I've seen.  It really is time that we had grey scale transparency!

René

That would be useful right now.  :)

INdeed!!! The waterfall looks fantastic, René!
