So this is Disney World. Can we live here? ::)
It would be great if Terragen 2 could be incorporated into many 3D model/render programs. 8)

@njeneb -  ;D 

I agree - TG2 could be the Union Station for many ideas.

I don't think so. I think Vue 7 Pioneer is what I downloaded for free some time ago.
It puts a big honking 7 logo on your final output. File sizes are limited etc ....

I was able to get Vue Infinite. It's very nice until you want to render something. Then it crashes. I think it could be a great program, but it's way too expensive. Upgrades cost more money. It also seems that upgrades are actually patches to fix problems. I am considering abandoning the program.
Besides, things in Terragen 2 make sense to me; even when I have no true idea what the thing I am using actually does. It does do the thing I want. ;D

Vue is extremely user friendly; the only obstacles between it and being a wonderful program are:
1) E-On attitude towards customers (they look at us just a the proverbial Barnum suckers to be milked as much as possible);
2) E-On lack of quality control (actaully about half of the fixes do add bugs, not fix them);
3) the behaviour of a small but really dangerous group of fanboys (I have nicknamed them the Vue Klux Klan ;D) which roam every forum even remotely connected with Vue and implacably harrass and silence any kind of criticism towards Vue and E-On.

Being these obstacles human-related and not technology related, there is no solution (at least none that does not send you into a prison or a psychiatric hospital..). As an example, I was so fed up with these problems that I actually stopped working with Vue and have switched to Carrara.

As a last note, I really like the general attitude of this forum: people do complain, but things are resolved in most cases in a totally civilized way.

Bye!!!

P.S.: in this http://www.cornucopia3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10106 thread you will find some renders with Vue8: people salivate on them... I don't find them so different from what 7 could do though godrays are now easier to create... a valid reason to upgrade?

The last image in the group is probably the best. Using Vue is kind of like Dazz or Bryce. The objects provide more content than the terrain. At least with Terragen 2, the user has the power tools to really make a stunning landscape before the objects are included.

Mmmh it all depends what works for you with terragen 2 I am just in my element im a very logical person so i thinks thats why but terragen can do a lot of things it wasent designed for with alot of improvision and once you know the tools you can create almost anything.
I was talking to dax (nukeation) and he said vue just works for him and his vue work is pretty damn amazing he is sort of the luc bianco of vue, so at the end of the day it all depends what works for you and in my case it is terragen all the way i just love this program haha!
