Build whole planets of realistic and beautiful views, control the weather and the light.
Build whole planets of realistic and beautiful views, control the weather and the light with Terragen capabilities. It features the most realistic atmosphere model available in a commercial application today. We simulate not only the more common Rayleigh and Mie scattering properties, but also the effects of ozone (new in Terragen 4).
Terragen implements a complete spherical planetary atmosphere, with accurate lighting and volumetric cloud and fog layers which can be controlled by custom shader networks, all rendered with multiple scattering and global illumination.
With realistic sunlight(s), local, and spot light sources that can illuminate anything, ray traced soft shadows, global illumination that enables full lighting interaction between surfaces, atmospheres and clouds, and ambient occlusion options,
Using 3D procedural functions, go beyond the limits of heightfields to create truly realistic terrains, including sheer cliffs and even overhangs. Let your imagination run wild and create out-of-this-world terrains.
Terragen implements an intuitive and realistic camera system based on physical camera attributes, including Focal Length and Aperture. Simple but powerful controls are available for motion blur as well as depth of field, allowing you to create consistent effects that integrate well with real footage or other renderer output.
