Quote from: Dune on July 07, 2019, 04:18:02 amYou can create something worthwhile with TG alone! Plenty of tools available, as well as some internal grass for far plains of grass. But when it comes to importing better greenery, my choice would be (and is) Speedtree. I use Lightwave to build houses, and bridges, and other hard-edged stuff, ZBrush and DAZ for people and clothing, and some soft stuff, like rocks or so.
Quote from: Asterlil on July 07, 2019, 01:49:25 pmI completely agree that one can create some knockout stuff with Terragen alone. I have done my object modelling in Blender and, at the moment, I'm trending toward exploiting TG's scenery for archviz, architectural visualizations. My method of learning seems to be deciding that I want to do something like, say, create a road that will carve into terrain where needed, and then exploring the documentation and the forum for clues as to how to do that. (Is there a tutorial for that?)Which is where I run into suggestions for using other software. I realize no single software app can be all things to all paracosmologists and artists -- I'm just trying to map the applications that orbit Terragen, so that I can figure out what not to ask TG to do.
