This is my first "finished" image from Terragen 4. Have never had a PC capable of running it capably, but one coming soon to help me pass the time in quarantine. Couldn't wait to get started, so started playing around on the old laptop--a 2015 i5 with 8 gigs of slow ram, and Intel integrated graphics. Took a LONG time to render even this small image. Nothing fancy, but fun to learn and play around.

Nice start and welcome to the forum :)

Welcome to TG.

For shorter render times, try working without the compute terrain node. I know it's 'standard' in the line, but not always necessary. Just experiment what it does for you, see if you notice differences when rendering without it.

I like the work on the mountain colours - looks pretty.

Only recently have I started to do it this way, but I can attest that it is faster. I do, however, keep a loose compute node for populations. Not sure if it adds to the render time or not...?

It doesn't, but indeed, you better leave it hooked on, but with a 'loose end' for pops.
