Amazing surface mapping, I wish I could get my grass to have that soft feel to it, very nice. I also like the balloon and birds. It would be interesting to see this scene without the dense fog.

great image! i've been eyeballing your terragen work, hehe, sweet! How are you getting the specular shine on the rocks in this image? can you give me a list of the plugins you are using?

cheers

ok, list of plugins I use here:





ok, I think that's about all of them. Yeah, I don't use plugins, only one which is to add overlays, but I didn't use any overlays in this image, only normal TG surfaces. I'm not sure what to tell you about the 'specular shine' here, because if there is some, it's completely fake. What I did here was to use dark colors for the rock face, mixed with, let's say, flecks of lighter colors. flecks isnt' really the right word, but bits, in any case. Then I often postprocess my images, with color correction and sharpen, and sometimes a little burning etc. but not too much. I just say, play around with surfaces, nad then play around with photoshop to bring things out, but remember too much contrast will end in something bad. Subtlty is the key. I guess I found that if you thought there was a specular shine plugin in this image :)
Thanks for the lovely comment

Thanks, im quite new to TG, but have been using maya and 3ds for sometime, specular shine is just one of the many options in these apps, and i noticed it was it was greyed out in TG mapping, i thought maybe someone had made a plugin to activate this option! the rugged bump and the "specular shine" on the rocks is excellent. not to mention the rest of the image.
i will continue to look into TG, thanks for your help : )

cheers, Damian

Terragen 2 did just come out, it's in a tech preview release at the moment, but that does have luminosity settings etc.
that might be worth a look into

The sun's shining down on these green fields of France;
The warm wind blows gently, and the red poppies dance.
The trenches have vanished long under the plow;
No gas and no barbed wire, no guns firing now.
But here in this graveyard that's still No Man's Land
The countless white crosses in mute witness stand
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man.
And a whole generation who were butchered and damned.


Reminds me of a song.

Hmmm, wow. I think this song has more meaning than my render. . .although I like the idea of poppies. . .if I could make effective poppies, I would :-P
