Just a early render for the "NWDA & Planetside True 3D and Animation Contest"

my plan for the next frame is to move the camera out into the open, while moving it to a higher altitude.

objects:
Walli's Pines (2), Dune's Swamp Cypress, NWDA wild grass (2), & a bush from Mr. LampPost's basic bush pack.

C&C welcome

Very nice to see you're entering the contest :)
It's good that you start working/posting in the recommended image dimensions.
For the viewers and you it is easy to see what the image has/lacks this way.
Looking forward to see your next iterations.

I hope you don't mind I share some thoughts on how to approach this contest:

I would not start this way, by choosing the vegetation you want to use. I'd first think of what I'd like to make/show and then design a terrain which supports this idea. Then I'd roughly lay out an animated path for the camera. This does not mean you actually have to animate a path, but make one in your mind. Then start detailing your terrain and check how it holds on all 6 frames.
Then if that's all ok I'd start adding objects/populations.

What do you think about this? It's of course a type of workflow, and thus quite personal perhaps.

thats probably a good suggestion - i will give that a try, i was considering changing the terrain some, or possibly using a heightfield, like something from the seamless USGS site

That sounds like a good idea. I think an animation showing terrain, vegetation and atmosphere features is a lot more interesting.
Good luck and keep posting :)

Looks like a lonely forest.... but wonderful work

the next iteration will be a bit different

i will be using a Heightfield for the terrain, one from the USGS seamless server.

i should have some previews soon

just a test render, Geotiff heightfield with a painted shader attached (blending)
i did'nt make the water that color just to make it pretty, it actually looks something like that.

C&C appreciated

Well, the water does look pretty.
They just issued a tornado warning and said to stay away from windows. Does that mean I can't use my computer?

I'm at work and thus using IE, so that might be the cause. Anyhow, this one works :)
