Hi.  I’m trying to create scenes which integrate both terrain figures for close-up detail and background terrain images to give the impression of scale.  What I’m having trouble with is integrating the two - I can’t get the textures or colors to match up the way I would like.  There’s a line where the two meet whenever I render the scene, breaking the illusion of one seamless landscape.  I will post an image when I get home, at work right now.

Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with this?  Many thanks in advance! smile

Which program are you using to render in?

Layering works well in most programs, but you need more than foreground/background…often you need a middle layer.

Also, DOF (depth of field) and/or atmosphere shaders will help.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.
