Hi !

Quick question !

I keep learning Terragen and today, I have make few tests about apply textures on sphere to have 3D effect, like you can see results here :

[attach=1]

Like you can see, I used few files ( Height, Base color, roughness ), I increase displacement to 0.1 and I have 3D effects like PBR files. I don't know if is the right way to do that, but I'm happy !
My question : I tried this on other objets like rocks or imported object but I have no result, the texture is flat and the displacement seem dosen't rock, do you konw why ?

I have a feeling you asked this question yesterday?
I might be wrong of course but it sounds like. Or perhaps I just don't get the question here... ::)

Hello Archon !

The only question I asked about images on objects is here :

Here, I want to talk about textures and depht effect, so  I thinked I needed to create new thread but maybe was wrong idea  ;D

Or maybe you talk about this thread :

For me it was a completely different question ( PBR & Depth effect / Modification of an object) so... But maybe it's related and the answer to my question will be the same!

I just read many pages about this and maybe you're right, same question...  ;D ;D ;D

It's always good to do a lot of reading. I think I've read every single post since 2009 or so. You always pick up some shards of information that can be useful later. Have to remember it though  :P

This is very correct. I do the same. Reading a lot and bit by bit putting things together thus improving my renders. It is not a fast method but works.
