An update to show some progress and give the thread a little action. I'll try to update it a little more frequently in the future.

I have started from the beginning with a new terrain. The idea is to just animate the camera flying through the valley. It's not gonna be too fancy, but I wanna try and finish this project. It is supposed to be a Norwegian Fjord. I know it's not the most typical Norwegian mountains, but it's the best I managed to do with World Machine and time is running up :(

Regards,
Terje

Testing with some vegetations.
I noticed some odd reflections of the trees near the middle of the image. Is this a bug, or?

Awesome work! This is looking fantastic, I really love the reflection of the mountains in the water.

Great image, I love it!
You must add some stones and improve the texture of the mountain, it'd be stunning.

Very good scale for the veggies. I would try to make the grassy areas have some dryer look to in places.

I'm working on some improvements right now, but this scene is getting a pain in the ass to render. Once it gets down to the water height it will render all the water first. Even the water that is far behind the mountains and that's not funny at all. Water should always be rendered last.

Looking really good so far.

Have you thought about making a water mask from a bitmap?

... or during development, just use a dark blue plane. Or a dark blue plane with a default shader with specularity on. Replace with water only for final renders.

Frank

I just turn off the water when I'm not working with it and don't need it ;)
