You can get some degree of 'fake' translucency in Terragen. In this case the default colour image has a value of 0.01 and the translucency(with no map) has a value of 250.
Ridiculous values but they work to some extent to make the guy seem not so solid. Of course, there'll be no shiny rainbowy bits but maybe other translucency/specular functions or images could approximate that, too...

dandelO,

That's just sweet.

I wonder if that will work in the whole scene. I'll give it a shot with a crop render.

Very nice work and thanks for the tip.

Your one of the few who always digs deeper.

Here is a spot render using dandelO's settings above. This looks much better and worth another render.

Thanks D.

That translucency is incredible. I didn't think TG can do something like this. Fantastic, dandelO!!
Marc, your ant looks perfect like this. Please give us another big image!

I agree, this could lead to a serious masterpiece of Terragen 2 capabilities. Not to mention being great art.

Here is another rendering using the translucency trick.

I saved it as an EXR out of Terragen and ran it through the Unsharp Mask in Photoshop CS4

What do you think?

Here is a version using DOF

Whew Marc. I like Anty02 the best. I hope you decide to make a larger image sometime.

How much larger? I thought 1200 x 750 would work for most monitors.

I like  Anty02  the most , but maybe there is a little too much unsharp?
This is subjective of course . It is really nice as it is  :)

Hannes

I prefer Anty03DOF. The translucency adds a lot to the picture! Great!

Wow. It looks even better. How the hell did you figure that out dandelO :D
