Pretty cool! I love the look of the water on the left. Quite some render time though. There are elements of the scene you left in that might not have been necessary though, yes? Seems like this kind of image ought to be do-able in a shorter time. Admire your persistence though. ;D

Mohawk I love this render and the water turned out really quite nice in the end.

Do you plan to do a tutorial for the wiki on how you created this image?

Mohawk20

A tutorial... hmmm, no promises  ;)

And thanks Oshyan. The water on the left looks so nice because the planet surface below/behind it has a reflective shader. So what you see between the water extends through the water. I guess that's what caused the long render time, but it's needed for the nice water.

And thank you all for the nice comments of course  ;D
Howgh!

Well done mohawk, i take my hat off to you. What did the final render time come to out of curiosity?

About 420 hours.

Well, perhaps a tutorial then. But what I did was very simple, so it won't be a big one...
Howgh!

The new crop was almost done, after 500 hours. But just before finishing, my brother plugs a buggy device into the wall socket and the fusebox shuts down.
That means: 500 hours GONE  :-[

I don't know if I'm going to render it again soon...

But I cán make that tutorial.
Where would you like to see it?
Howgh!

Maybe you can find someone with a spiffy quadcore who can render it for you? :-\ Aaaah, it's such a pity :'(

Sorry to hear about this, Mohawk.  Maybe someday we will find some ways to build an inexpensive render farm and have it connected to a UPS.   ;D

Moses must be heartbroken...sorry, I couldn't resist.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Mohawk, just a suggestion, could you not send the file to one of the render farms that do TG2 and let them do the rendering donkey work for you? Sorry to here about the wasted time.

Regards to you.

Well, that would be a good idea, apart from the fact they ask money and I just bought the Xfrog plant bundle... But thanks for thinking along!
Howgh!

http://www.planetside.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Terragen_2_Tutorials#Parting_Sea_Tutorial

I just made a first set-up for my tutorial in the Planetside Wiki.
It's very basic, no pictures or anything. I'm still learning the wiki system, so it might take a while before it looks good.

But if you want to try your hand at it already, use the above link.
Howgh!

Matt could probably do it for him :D :D :D :D :D :D

Yeah I reckon for a render farm to do just one frame you're looking at £100 ($160)
Figured out how to do clicky signatures
