    Side tracked again... Got to a point on the Terrain Editor where I had what I think is a cool looking terrain and then spent three days making materials for it. All of them adapted from David & Horo's High Res Terrains materials but adapted quite a lot. Also done matching skies for them all... Pleased with the results and more pleased with knowing a little bit more about the DTE. laugh

    Hansmar: I keep looking at other terrain generating softwares and then just going back ot the Bryce Terrain Editor so I appreciate your renders showing what World Machine can do... You're getting good results.

    Horo: The whirlpool looks fab. Would be easy to do a heightmap in Photoshop with it's "twirly around" filter. ... That's not what it's called really, but that's what I call it. laugh

    Alex: Wonderful as ever, Lonely Oak is my favourite. Great golden sunset sky on that one and you've really managed to get that colour casting across the scene making it all look so natural.

  • Horo - Excellent works with the DTE. 

    Dave Savage - Very cool scifi scene. 

    Slepalex - Amazing cloud vortex; really dramatizes the scene. The forests scenes are incredible; Oak Sunset is also my favorite.

    Hansmar - Nice going; you seem to get a handle on WM. Keep up the good work.
     

  • I'm still experimenting with World Machine and decided to create an alien craft in Hexagon 2. The patterns on the alien ship's hull are created in Bryce's DTE.

    Dave - thank you. Great scenes. There's a lot of geometry in the terrain, not all is bump. Very nice wide-angle shots.

    Eugenius - thank you. Very well done models, terrain also looks good. The render looks a bit flat to me. I see from where the sun shines but the shadows are very weak. Did you use a white Sky Dome?

    Dave - Excellent scenes, great lighting and materials, awesome distraction smiley

    Eugenius Maximus-  very nice modeling and terrain also looks good.

    EugeniusMaximus: Nice models, nice landscape. For me, it needs darker shadows but it's a good scene.

    Mermaid: That's a nice looking range of mountains and fluffy clouds.

     

    Bryce Terrain Editor tip: If you want smoother erosion, use a lower resolution terrain. Get the terrain to look how you want and then increase the resulotion to paint finer details on.

    The example below was done at 256 and erosion added from the TE menu (there are 3 ways of adding erosion: Erosion, Eroded and Erode) for this I used the one marked B.

    Then changing the resolution to 1024, I added the footprints... If you add erosion to a 1024 terrain, you get sharp cracks instead of gentle furrows. If you add fine details to low resolution terrains they'll be too soft edged.

    mermaid - very nice mountainous landscape and great biplane. anaglyph is excellent.

    Dave - now that's a cool idea to do it in different resolution layers. Thanks for the tip. Got to experiment with this.

  • SlepalexSlepalex Posts: 696

    All this is very useful. I mean experiments with TE. True, all this is lost among the hundreds of messages. It would be nice to create a separate thread on this topic.

  • HansmarHansmar Posts: 1,478

    Mermaid, Horo, adbc, Dave Savage, Eugenius Maximus: Thanks.

    Slepalex: wonderful nature scenes. My favourite is also the lonely oak. Partly due to the wonderful coloured sky.

    Dave Savage: Fantastic set of terrain renders. Lovely to see all the textures in all the different lights. Very good tips for the TE. I'll certainly go back to it.

    Eugenius: Great looking terrain and well used.

    Mermaid: very nice flight scene.

    Dave, beautiful scenery! True, the  footprints in my opinion are too big.

    That's a very lovely autumnal render... Extremely good.

    Thanks Dave, Horo, Hansmar and Jay

    Dave - cool idea thanks for sharing, my next question will be about the footprints, are they photoshop ones on a terrain?

    Slepalex - beautiful scene, I agree very peaceful and serene.

    I made a footprint brush and saved it to the 'User Brushes' in the TE and painted them onto the terrain so they are part of the geometry. smiley

    Dave Savage : Amazing examples with the DTE, the terrain materials and the skies. Thanks for the tip about the resolution. The scene with the footprints is great.

    Eugenius Maximus : Nice terrains and modeling, great sky also.

    mermaid : I like the scene with the plane and the anaglyph.

    Slepalex : your new work is so beautiful.

  • mermaid010mermaid010 Posts: 2,409

    Dave - thanks for the explanation; something else to experiment with.

    Adbc - thanks

    Dave - cool footprints but unfortunately presented (for me). They look as coming out of the sand instead of going into it. This is an illusion because the light shines from top left.

    A Sunday afternoon job that rendered in less than half an hour. 16 TE tiles (1024) and 4 TE tiles (2048) combined.

    Slepalex: really wonderful scene!

    Dave Savage: good idea, to create footprint brushes! But, like Horo says, it looks like the footprints are on the sand, not in them. I once used two feet as negative terrains to make imprints in a positive terrain.

    Horo: Rather strange looking terrain, but interesting and very well lighted.

  • Dave SavageDave Savage Posts: 2,368

    Sadly, there's nothing I can do about the "illusion" apart from suggesting you look at the fourth footprint up from the bottom... Which being deeper than the others gives the perspective you need to be able to tell which way the light is coming from... In theory, from then, you will see all the footprints being imprinted and not extruded. smiley

     I noticed that a lot with crop circles.

    Flip them around 180 degrees and they look inverted.

    Like this one.

    I often find that I look at photos of plates or something similar and have to really concentrate to see then as concave and not convex,  so tjhis doesn't just happen in 3d images.  It's a combo of the lighting on the image/phot and the lighting of the place you are in when viewing.

  • HoroHoro Posts: 6,495

    Oh yes, it isn't Dave's fault. I know this from looking at close-ups from Moon craters, out of a sudden they flip this way or that. For the foot prints, I think a context would help to make the brain behave decently. wink

    I think it's all about the lighting. If you use HDRI or Sphere Dome Light in combination with the sun with soft shadows, the traces will look really concave.
    And further. Before uploading footprints to the TE library, they need to be to blur out a bit when it comes to sand.

    Additional objects casting a shadow actually create the correct illusion of concave footprints.

    Here is the work of 2009, where I used footprints.
