Excellent! Some interesting dithering artifacts at the top of the image though. Was that in the render, or due to post processing?

I almost missed this topic. as an idea, it's also useful for recreate the Ionosphere

... and this is exactly why I share my clips... seeing someone else find a good use for them :)

Change the vector to the poles and add auroras or other latitude-based masking.  All you need for each different latitude restriction is a new colour adjust node from the output to set the limits.

I formatted my PC a few days ago, saying this

@ Oshyan: yes, is PW. I finally buy PS cc v.18 yesterday, but the jpeg module was bad configurated, the original tiff is much more detailed

@ bigben: this scene already contains auroras  ;) i will make a render test now, but gonna be slow, because for now im only dedicating 512 mb for VRAM
Hmmm, what version of Terragen does God use?


This works very well. Awesome work! Thank you so much!  :D

I wonder if this can be used to mask GI and AO on the side of a planet where the direct light is on, I've often wanted GI and AO only on the dayside of my planets but never could figure out how to do this.
Put that in your pipeline and smoke it!


You could try plugging that mask into the shadow function of the atmo (theoretically).
