Title: Mountain Structures - 1st Path Traced Render
Post by: KlausK on July 08, 2019, 08:10:29 pm
Hi everyone.
So, after upgrading Terragen to the latest Frontier build a few days ago this is the first path traced render for me.

The Mountain is actually the Planet Object bent into the form of a parabolic curve with blue nodes.
Pushing upwards in a few places is the standard masked Fractal terrain with the Fractal warp shader.
Strata and outcrops shader together with some Perlin3D noise does the rest.
C&C most welcome!

CHeers, Klaus

Weird but cool! The subtle lighting on the rock structure (and the rock shapes themselves) are really cool.

Thank you!
I have not yet rendered the scene with the Standard Renderer but I guess the Path Tracer is helping with that subtlety.

Oh, and here is a picture of the Planet Object - or what is left of it ;)

Different, moody and alien.
