Title: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on August 11, 2016, 02:33:50 PM
Hello, here is my first project (i'm new terragen child  ;D), it's unfinished yet, but this what i've got now   8) ;D ;)  Don't judge me too hard  ;)   My next steps will be, vegetation variation, some rocks in water, arc, clouds...
Special thanks to Dune and other guys, i learnt so much from them  ;) 8)

P.S. Teaser - my second project i'm working parallel is cliffs... it's just a begining ;)) 

-Best regards, Artice

The rock strata, fracturing and pit marks look fantastic. The colors are nicely oxidized and is very believable all throughout.

Cube, sphere, baby planet, whatever displacable. Perhaps a pop of rocks even works. What did you use?

That is one wild scene! Great surface work and quite an immersive environment, with a sense of large scale and light. Is this part of a larger story?

I was hoping it would be, but not.. I haven't enough PC power for this.. I wanted to create an animation, but :(( just an images for portfolio..  The most amazing thing, that i will do the series of images with this characters at different environment and someday i will do a movie stuff  :o ;D :D ;)

Been trying this for ages and am drawing a blank...could you post a .tgc...I seem to have a brain cramp....found the .tgd, thanks Ulco...I'm more confused than ever now having explored. Will try again on a fresh brain in the morning.

Hello! My research in new workflow terragen + Clarisse... I'm really amazed of what Clarisse can do itself  and in cooperation with other software.. My first attempt to learn is below..  Terrain (terragen) + cloud (houdini)..  It's just firs step, but i'm pretty impressed what i can do..  Big enviroments with waterfalls and animation with pretty ease..   :o 8)

Title: Re: My first project

Very nice indeed. So, is this based on a sphere/cube/planet again, or displacement from the main planet?
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on September 03, 2017, 06:50:05 AM

These are excellent!
What is the secret of your sharp angles?
Vector displacement perhaps but from what source?
Great work!

Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Dune on January 07, 2018, 06:04:12 AM
If those are made within TG it's an awesome technique. I guess you used your vector displacement for this, just noticing your other post. Great stuff, but please give us some insight in the rock formation part.
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: cyphyr on January 07, 2018, 08:25:36 AM
Great work :)
This technique is an order of magnitude over what I've seen created in terragen alone!
I guess this really narrows down the field for the Cliff challenge! (joke!)
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Tangled-Universe on January 07, 2018, 09:41:43 AM
I suppose you are using Houdini for the base shape and export those to VDM?

There's more to it though, since (according to Matt, because I asked him last year) VDM does not allow for closed loops/open holes and thus true arches are not possible.
Unless the base houdini mesh had an "arch" at its side or top and you rotated the whole thing in TG.
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on January 07, 2018, 10:32:20 AM
I suppose you are using Houdini for the base shape and export those to VDM?
------------------------------
Yes and no  ;D  I used cinema4d and houdini, but vdm i exported from houdini!!
-----------------------------
I didn't rotate shape in terragen.. i used other technique  of "arch" at its side without any rotation
----------------------------
I wish terragen have an ability to create caves and holes with VDB stuff...  VDB+microdisplacement = awesomeness !!  ;D  ;)
A long time awaited vertical strata +rectangular noise = is too an awesomness  ;D ;D ;) 8)
----------------------------
Dune, i'll give you a little tips a bit later i promise!!!  :o ;) ::)
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: luvsmuzik on January 07, 2018, 01:01:45 PM
So this comes into Terragen as an image map displacement, or object? OUTSTANDING!
I get what you are doing, I just was making sure I get the method to connect to Terragen.
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on January 07, 2018, 01:17:32 PM

Title: Re: My first project

So how are the arches done?
Two planets or a plane and a planet?
Please tell us.
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Dune on January 07, 2018, 03:52:11 PM
You can do a lot with a bunch of cubes stacked in a certain rough shape, then apply the same displacement setup to all. Vdisp will then be a little trickier, however.
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on January 07, 2018, 03:53:27 PM
Thanks Kadri!!  ;)   j meyer - Arches is a vector displacement  8) ;)
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on January 07, 2018, 03:55:47 PM
Dune i can't use cubes in a rough shapes, because terragen doesn't love rough edges at all  :-\
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Dune on January 07, 2018, 03:58:54 PM
I meant 'rough' as in roughly stacked. But the cubes can be made with softer edges, and they will 'catch' that displacement.
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: j meyer on January 07, 2018, 03:59:20 PM
I know about your VD experiments, but with VD alone it`s impossible
as Martin (Tangled-Universe) pointed out already.
Please explain.

I meant 'rough' as in roughly stacked. But the cubes can be made with softer edges, and they will 'catch' that displacement.
------------------------------
I tried this stuff already with no success!! Edges need to be too soft for displacement  :-\  So it looses it cubes shape.. i thought to make rectangular as possible, bit for now terragen can't handle such stuff, you know that  :-\ ;)  I even tell you more, my base VD shape is complete from cubes  ;D ;) but it's a secret..  ;)
------------------------------
Arch-is a vector displacement, but with extra stretch from sides.. that's all  ;) 8)  nothing to hide.. ;D :o
------------------------------
But..... Terragen can handle textures not bad, so if developers will make a rectangular noise texture, like in vue it will be a game changer  ;) 8)
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Dune on January 07, 2018, 04:11:30 PM
I have to experiment a bit again, apparently  ;) Maybe vdisp works with a stack of cubes anyway.....
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on January 07, 2018, 04:14:17 PM
I'll wait your stuff to see how far we can go  8) ;D ;)
-----------------------------------------
Dune you will do VD in Mudbox?!
Title: Re: My first project
Post by: cyphyr on January 07, 2018, 04:24:32 PM
Hmm so is the VDM camera projected?

I'm thinking the basic work flow is to create a rough shape in C4D (I guess any 3d modelling program would work) and import that into Houdini where you create a normal map and then do the weird magic of flattening and "loosening" the object with the normal map attached.

The VDM is then imported into Terragen and ... well that bit don't make any sense to me since I've tried using VDM's in Terragen with no success.

I don't see how the map can store information to displace laterally at a certain height.

Scratch that I have no clue lol

Are you using the PLE version of Houdini?

Great work I say again :D

Title: Re: My first project
Post by: Artice-3d on January 08, 2018, 04:50:48 AM
The most important work i do in cinema 4d... Than i export it to Houdini and create magical VDM, not normal map, it's the other story  ;)  Than i import to Terragen and do terrain magic !  ;D ;)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
That's the most helpful thread about vector displacement!! You can read and understand how to do such a things!!  ::) :o ;)
