Terragen doodles
« on: November 21, 2018, 08:51:39 PM »
Hi!

I finally got myself a copy of Terragen. Found it a bit hard to get into at first, but I feel like I'm veery slowly getting the hang of it. I have to say it's addictive!

Don't have much to show for now, but since I'm going to be asking a ton of questions, I figured I might start a post to share my progress.

This one is using procedural erosion and post processed in Camera Raw. I still can't get over how good the skies/clouds and distant horizons look in Terragen.

Welcome to the forum, and this is a nice introduction indeed. Have fun and ask away (and experiment a lot).

thanks! I has "hiding" the lack of proper shading in the subdued lighting. Still have to figure out how material layering works. But sunsets/dawns look sooo good in Terragen, that I can rarely resist lowering the sun elevation.

I've started poking around the heightfield shaders. It's really cool that you can load .imgs straight away, I can skip the geotiff conversion!

This is using a Hi-Rise dem and red band image. I still have to look into populations and fake stones, to be able to add detail if the camera gets close to the ground.

It was also fun to play around with the atmosphere and light settings to try to get something a bit more Mars like.

Doodle on!  It appears that you have some basics working.  But look into the File Sharing section here for lots of tasty tidbits.  Many times they can be adapted to your desires.  Good luck and have fun!  And ask questions!
I'm going off the rails on this crazy train!
