I thought some of you might also like looking at this. This guy has some nice images. http://dmytry.pandromeda.com/volumetrics/index.html

Yeah, Dmytry was the main person who developed Mojo's volumetrics system to where it is today.  It's darn good, but not quite as good as Terragen's can be in my opinion ;).

As far as I know Dmytry was the *only* person developing the volumetrics plugin for Mojo. ;) His plugin also does non-cloud volumetrics - Isosurfaces - which are a pretty cool way to get caves, overhangs, and lots of other wild terrain shapes. Perhaps most significantly Dmytry has a procedural erosion system working well enough to show some impressive demonstrations. Unfortunately that work has yet to see the light of day, and it sounds like he's currently doing some proprietary work under NDA so who knows if or when we'll see more from him publicly.

Oshyan, can Planetside sign this fellow up?  We need this.  NEED.   :P
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

I have Firefox version 2.0.0.7 and all I do is click on the links.  Geez.  This is weird.

Frankly there are only two significant pieces of his work that we don't already have covered - Isosurface rendering and (related to that) procedural erosion. As far as I understand it implementing Isosurface rendering wouldn't be terribly difficult, but it's not something we'll be doing for the TG2 final later this year - maybe a future update. Procedural erosion is another matter, but clearly it's possible and if anyone else could figure it out I'd bet it would be Matt. He's a pretty clever guy. ;D

Oshyan, I need a napkin (drooling).  It isn't fair to say cool stuff like that and mean it, you know.   ;D
