Quote from: René on August 03, 2019, 03:08:31 amI agree that those images made with 0.9 have something 'special'. It may be because of the limitations of the software at the time; the Germans have an expression for this: 'In der Beschränkung zeigt sich der Meister', which roughly translates as 'The Master shows himself in the limitations'. Because of the absence of vegetation and signs of human activity, those old renderings have a certain loneliness and pristine nature that is very attractive.However, I don't think it's that difficult to replicate that quality in Terragen 4; however, you will have to restrain yourself and keep it a little basic.Oh, and look at the beautiful Mars renders that Kees Veenenbos made with Terragen 0.9. He even made it to the cover of National Geographic magazine.This is a selection of his work. The images after 2005 were made with a more recent version of Terragen. http://www.space4case.com/mmw/pages/space4case/mars/mars-images-2001-2.php
