That looks great, all that is missing is some highlights for the frozen tiny ice crystals in the snow and some melted parts on the dry land and walla.          :)

Thanks for all your kind comments

king_tiger: I don't know isf you can consider this as a tutorial, in fact is a job already done with a little (and not so clear) explanation

I'll post soon other experiments :)

Regards,

Lucio

Lucio... Thanks for sharing, this is amazing. I agree.. one of the holy grails.
I just need to tweak that texture a bit more...

Excellent work!  I'm having some fun with your clip file now, I'll let you know how it goes.

Thank you

I've tried some different solution on these days, I'm going to post something new about the node. Well, having subsurface scattering implemented would be great!

first attempt at using Lucio node clip file to make a glacier on a dem I have.. Though I realised it has a shader that should have more fuzzyness but its been rendering for over 10hrs so I didn't bother restarting it..

heres a download to the file

Yes king, you absolutely need to set much more softness for the edges, they are too sharp and "cubic". Have you raised the vertical emboss?

Beautiful atmosphere and overall view though

Keep it up with experiments you all, I'm curious ;)

there is a snow surface shader for everything but the glacier I had increased the displacement but I didn't see the lack of softness in the test renders/preview...

I might revisit this as its not completely what I wanted.. to fix the softness, add some fakestone somewhere, and also make the glacier no so curved where it meets the water..
