Clay Render
« on: April 27, 2017, 06:51:03 PM »
Hi,

Just for fun. I don't know why, but I just love these clay renders people are making
with other software's, so I decided to make my own with Terragen :)

Hope you like it.

Really nice! Now I'm curious what it would look like with proper shaders. :D

Theoretically you'd have to start from a fairly smooth surface before compute terrain (not rougher than your snow), and make a hard pf mask (low color roughness) covering almost everything, with only hard black patches where you want no snow. Then mask a snowy colored surface shader (after the compute terrain and after terrain small displacements/colors) with this pf, and use the offset to smooth that layer and blow up the snow.
In case you still haven't seen enough of my work: www.ulco-art.nl

Getting some results with displaced snow. I know there are some strange displacements in some places, but this
is the closest I've gotten on making deep snow. I used dandel0's Snow Shader and tweaked it a little.
Really wish there was an easy way to make deep snow in Terragen.

Does look like you're heading in the right direction.
