I was asked quite often these days how I achieved the lighting and the surfaces in the render 'Canyon Impression'.
So I made a small workflow:[Moderator edit: broken link removed. Please note that this tutorial is no longer available at the original URL. You may consider requesting that it be reposted by the original author.]
I hope that you will find usefull hints - and won't be dissapointed, about the simpleness of this render.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together. It will be of great help!
This is a fine contribution to our learning curve friend....thanx a gig for your effort and thoughtfulness.

Thanks for the great job. ;D It has to be put in the Sticky "TG2 learning center" of this section of the Forum. I had been touched when I saw your image on Rosity and your efforts to make this little tut are very appreciated :-)
Let me just add that this image, although simple (in the final result) is incredibly beautiful!
I am particularly impressed by the look of the displacement along the overhangs on the left side, it looks very nice!
That PDF file is handy...
OMG, Thank you.
Great work and thank you keep up the good work :)
A few links in the PDF don't work. Links to 'this tutorial' do nothing for me.
Thanks 3DGuy, I have modified the original post and added the links. I bet you already know these ,-)
Incredible job! This will make canyon designing much easier!
I'll add this to the TG Resources Site (http://tgresources.meltingice.net) in a couple of minutes ;)
This is beautifull.... Thanks for sharing this with us... I have learnt a lot from this tgd. And I thought I was getting the hang of Canyon/Strata.
This would have been very helpful before I did mine ;D; nevertheless its a great piece of work I will study your settings closely.
Could you create a tutorial on how you tiled the textures?
Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge and files.
Thank's a lot for sharing this with all users!
I have tried to follow your tut - but i get an error on opening the terrain-file : The GrandCanyon40DEM.file is missed - where can i get it ???
I can see this being really usefull, could you please kindly upload a ZIP file verison?? I dont have access to software that will uncompress a .rar file. (I dont have the authority to download the software from this pc)
Thank you in advance
