Hi there.  I am looking for a tutorial that would show how to create a ‘Mars’ type Sci-Fi terrain, kind of like a canyon?  I also need to add uneven rocks that project upwards from the ground plane.  I am new to Bryce 7 Pro so I am not sure where to look?

Any help would be appreciated!

You can draw a height map in the terrain editor or a graphics app and import it into the TE. White is high elevation, dark low. The height map drawn in a graphics app must be 16 bit grey scale TIFF. You can also use DEMs, like I did here http://www.bryce5.com/details.php?image_id=4133

Thank you Horo!  I will give that a shot.  I will need to get more familiar with the Terrain Editor from some of the online videos and the Artist Guide.

Thanks again!
