Post by: Oshyan on June 13, 2013, 04:17:38 PM
Dear forum community, we have been anticipating this moment for a long time and now at last we are able to announce our brand new Terragen product! Read below for details. Afterward you might want to check out our FAQ (http://www.planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,16213.0.html) (especially if you have any questions; please post them there and not in this thread, if not already answered), or feel free to comment more generally below.


Announcing Terragen 3 Professional

Today we are proud to announce the introduction of a new, professionally-oriented product focused on the needs of visual effects production for film and broadcast, game asset development, architectural visualization, and print. Developed with direct feedback from visual effects vendors using Terragen in major film and TV projects, Terragen 3 Professional includes many new features and performance enhancements to meet the needs of deadline-driven projects. A Linux render node will also be available with Terragen 3 Professional, making integration with existing Linux render farms possible for the first time.

Feature HighlightsTerragen 3 builds on the cutting-edge technology first released in Terragen 2, which has been used for visual effects in more than 20 feature films as well as numerous major TV productions, and is relied upon by many of the most respected visual effects companies. Terragen’s powerful displacement and atmospherics engines have garnered a reputation for accurate, photo realistic environments featuring detailed terrains, physically-based volumetric skies, and massive populations of instanced geometry. Planetside Software has continued to improve these core strengths for Terragen 3, producing new creative options and render capabilities, improved performance, and enhanced workflows.

Terragen 3 will be released in July, 2013. To celebrate the upcoming release of the Terragen 3 product line, we are giving away 5 licenses of Terragen 3 Professional. Just visit Terragen3.com (http://terragen3.com) and sign up at the top of the site where it says "Get Updates + Enter to Win" to get early access to ongoing Terragen 3 news and exclusive discounts, and be entered for a chance to win a license of Terragen 3 Professional. You can also increase your chances of winning by sharing Terragen3.com (http://terragen3.com) with others. Each person who signs up with your custom referral code will grant you an additional entry in the drawing, as well as enter for a chance to win their own license.

Tropospheric, don't get your hopes up to high. I have not seen anything that says that there will be additional documentation provided with Terragen 3. It would be nice and is far past due.
