Title: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: luvsmuzik on November 10, 2017, 10:41:10 AM
Classic Erosion displacement

I had trouble with my fake stones also, not used to finding these altitudes for surface layers being in the negative... ;D

Some erosion renders...
Going to try these at higher resolution or possibly a canyon fly through  ;D

Thanks guys! I think I made a cave way up there, now that I look close at this, gonna have to fly up there and take a gander. :)

Useful information about this great plugin here. Perhaps we could make this a "child" somewhere?

WIP

Thanks to blinkfrog for the plugin! This render uses the plugin twice with six RGB maps with color adjust nodes. I am still adjusting color and settings, but lots of fun!
Dune and Hannes for the flame shader....cut opacity with a power fractal, who knew?

You get some of the wildest results. Like the sky in the top and in the bottom, erosion.

Nice set, the first one is the most natural looking, that said they all have good qualities about them

Here is Denis Sirenko's cloud warping method,
2 cloud layers,
warpers scaled to 1/10th all, with transform input,
cloud height  800 and 1200,
altitude 0 and 5. coverage -0.3,
edge sharpness 40 and 50.
density 0.001 and 0.002
For my purposes radius is 10,000.

WIP adding to previous render

Now with 5 cloud layers, 2 for flames, 3 smoke junk, render time at 30 minutes. Adding previous features little by little.
Title: Re: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: WASasquatch on May 02, 2018, 09:28:52 PM
I wonder if some Y stretching may effect a localized cloud like it does a sphere. It stretching the mid area a bit. It would add height to the fire. If not maybe a smaller scale would make more realistic flames with a depth modulator following the flame detail (though this will increase render time).
Title: Re: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: luvsmuzik on May 02, 2018, 11:26:30 PM
Yes, it can be done that way. DandelO  :)did one of the first that I saw done. I put a link to that file for you in my Scene from the Observatory where you first asked this. The file is in a post titled Sorry Marc_Orange County. It is titled such because he basically destroys Marc Gebhart's trees in a forest fire. I do believe file was done around the time of one the US west coast famous forest fires.

I know the type stretching you mean like some do tree bark or wood planks, PFs are very useful, hey? Of course ya gotta have some noise.... :)

Still using Denis Sirenko's nebula warp
Erosion Classic flow, wear, and water maps to RGB
masked fake stone distribution

Needs a smoke plume or fumage (just found the files for those  :))

New erosion WIP

Changing cloudy sky to sun with soft shadows next render, 45 min render so far , atmo haze at 4
Title: Re: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: luvsmuzik on May 07, 2018, 10:10:17 PM
Changed haze and activated soft shadows.

This is an old TG9 terrain, imported for Classic Erosion plugin. Notice I was able to use a single population of trees for the entire terrain. Yay!

The surface shader looks really soft in some spots, but at the same time it gives it a foliage look.

I could imagine you could offset the layer, mask it with some voronoi billows or something, and use a computer normal/terrain to than pinch in the base of the offset to create the look of dense folliage/bushes from afar. Though using normals and lateral displacement would be tricky.
Title: Re: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: luvsmuzik on May 08, 2018, 12:10:53 PM
Thanks for the input! Yes this is a pretty bare canvas presently. I have added some displacement to the greener areas so far. Perhaps the browner "wear" is a little strong. I was sort of going for a deforestation look and for scale it is not quite right. I just hate trees that look like dots, but for accuracy I shall reduce their size and add some variations.

Rock Face for TG4 free version by Dune

Erosion Classic plugin Trials of erosion on columnar rockface will continue. I also changed some variables in the node setup just for fun.

Third one is nice. You got rid of the nasty laterals that are visible on 1&2.

This one is really nice, except for the flowers. They are too big and a too defined spot, IMO.

Really well done. Ditto on the flowers. Maybe some more colour variation on the bark of the trees. It looks a little solid, and maybe too bright so shadows seem strangely lit.

PS this reminds me of those old documentary scenes from the 90s, I expect a T-Rex to come walking out into the clearing at any moment...

Voronoi Triceratops skin

Rawr! Lol Haha that's not bad. I thought it was a original texture.
Title: Re: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: luvsmuzik on May 15, 2018, 01:47:41 AM
Thanks WASasquatch! This time I did a little more fiddling. I am just messing with the merge shader and scale. Skin/hide is the basic voronoi cracks clip with a couple PFs thrown in for color blending. I may try a more tropical plant setup with the old prehistoric tree files ....just havin fun.
Title: Re: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: bobbystahr on May 15, 2018, 02:27:26 AM
the T Rex looks better but not overly fond of the Triceratops, maybe too much bump, and maybe add a wee bit of bump to T Rex as he seems to need detail.

An old tgd file by WASasquatch, Bulbous cracks. Ran this through some mild erosion WIP

Made a little muddy creature with Blender 2.79 skin modifier. just some little scaly crawler. Crustified protective hide.
Still an erosion scene with Danill's Classic Erosion.

4 tree populations
painted shader masking  (I tried using the rivers color layer as a mask with no luck. Does this need a color adjust node before piping to density node of tree object?)
Title: Re: Erosion in 4 renders
Post by: Dune on October 12, 2018, 06:13:24 AM
Depends. If your river color is very dark, it wouldn't mask much. White is obviously masking most, so you should try to turn it as white as possible.
