Great to see you're back Terje :)
Can't wait to see your final render!
In case you want to get rid of your aurora lighting up surfaces you can disable "enable secondary" in your cloud layer, but be aware that it will affect its behavior in the atmosphere as well.

I actually want it to light up the surfaces. That's why I added a light source for it 😉

the latter wall I rendered myself.

Now that must have been an exercise in patience..I link folks to that when they want to see what TG is capable of....

I have a question.

When I was going to send my scene to Pixel Plow, I used the "gather scene" option in Terragen and put it in a folder of its own.
The problem is that Terragen can't load my obj. files after  this is done for this scene. Anyone know what to to about this?

I can post a screenshot of the warnings when I get back home.

I get this warning, but I don't really understand what the problem is. I've tried pointing Terragen to the new "Project Assets" folder it created, but I
can't get rid of this warning.

Are you loading this from the library? If so load it from the menu Objects tab instead. The library has some known issues loading objs.
 


Never mind I see you are prepping for Pixel Plow, A Gathered project. Something must be incorrect with your path or the file as gotten corrupt somehow

I get that warning with many .obj files, many from XFROG and almost all from other sources. I think it's a TG problem remembering it's loaded because these objects most often load properly textured...just what I've noticed in my stuff.

Are you opening the gathered .tgd? Try doing that from the Folder/Directory if you aren't already.

Everything works fine on my computer, even with those warnings, but it didn't when I sent it to Pixel Plow. Wasted some money on that huge image. Anyone know how I could fix this?

maybe save the .obj files as .tgo and use them instead as a temporary fix? You could send the gathered project to one of us to test and not waste more money if it doesn't work.

But there are some other objects in the scene that are tgo. files. They didn't get rendered either.
I watched the video tutorial from Oshyan to make sure I did this correctly.

I've attached another image of how the folder I sent to Pixel Plow looks like in case there is something wrong there.

Hopefully Oshyan can sort this out then because that looks fine to me.

So what exactly happened when sending it to Pixel Plow? It did render it, but without the objects?
