perfection is not when there's nothing more to add, it's reached when nothing more can be left out

Fantastic job!  You've achieved a great level of realism here.  I love it!

Sure, really there's not much to it. I started with a DEM from Timster.net  http://timster.net/grand_canyon/antelope_point_AZ%20.html Thanks Tim!

The Image Sedona was rendered in 4 or 6 parts, I don't recall exactly at the moment. Old Age  ;)

First I adjusted the Base Colors Node, Easier to attach the clip file so just insert it into your new scene. I do most of my displacements through the Base Colors Node for now. It keeps things simple for me as I'm not to Bright.  ;D

Then I created a "Twist and Shear" (with minimal settings applied) and a "Terrain Height Adjust" (To suit Taste) in the Terrain Group. I will also attach that clip file.

Also added Strata to the Surface Shaders Group. I'll attach the Strata clip and distribution node.

I only applied the twist and shear to the right side of the render (Cropped and spliced together in PS)

I also attached the camera from this scene for my POV. Just insert the clip and hook it up to the render nodes.

I haven't figured this program out buy a long shot so I Improvise a lot. LOL

Not much but I hope it Helps someone.

Cheers,
Jay

hey buzz...if you dont mind...can I want to ask you 2 questions

1.) what difference would it make if I use shader group to displace the terrain and if I use terrain group to displace the terrain

2.) why did you add distribution shader as child shader to strata and not as blending shader...
