Some more, without compute terrain still. I hope I'm not boring you guys  ;) Anyway, a nice comparison between RT and PT again, straight TG and color adjusted a bit.

Fantastic lighting and POV.

Fantastic scenery and a great lightning!
Really another excellent picture created by Ulco.

Very nice additions. Love the cloudy mood set with that wolf overlooking the land.

Boring??? I'm truly amazed - as always!  I'd never thought of using Fake Stones in such a manner, and even if I tried... well, I won't go there...

not bored, entertained. I like Rocky mountains_09-08-19_v3-test2_autotoned_reduced.jpg the best personally.

I'm curious what the patch size is for the fake stones, what sort of benefit it could be used for (besides this obviously). I know it's not below 0.1 because I had to do that manually for smoother less "stary" shaped stones.

What do you mean by patch size? There's no compute terrain involved. Just basic terrain, three full coverage fake stones (6m, 9m and 16m or so) in line as child on a surface shader and a mix of image map applied as surface shader of each stone. That's basically it.

As you noted, no need to compute fake stones. This is because it has its own within it of some sort. That's why they are rounded to some degree and not just voronoi displacement shaped.

I'm wondering what that computation scale is at.

This is also why you can offset on lateral within the stones surface shader. Otherwise how else are we getting that compute of the stones?

Ah, that computation scale. Yes, I'd like to know how that works too, though it's not important. It works.

Well it's pretty darn important to lateral displacement computation 😅😂 drastically impacts look.

Knowing helps me base my work around it. Might even be cool to expose it as a setting.

These are things docus are for.

Awesome. Looking great. The blocky rock forms are very nice here. A good mix between edges and rounder outcrops imo.

I like the textures in the first the best, and displacement in the last the best.

Great work, Ulco.
