About three weeks ago I got the request from the "THE HORROR ZINE" for an article about my surreal works in their magazine. Now he has appeared and I was very happy:

Do you mean a checker board pattern

So glad you are sharing this! Fantastic!
Terragen Discussion / Re: Photography Techniques Can DeNoise Noisy Renders
« Last post by Kadri on Today at 11:41:48 AM »
It's the renderer's job to produce the lowest noise render in the time it's given, and if stacking were more efficient then the renderer would work like that already.

That was one of the things that came to my mind and the reason i was curious actually.
Still curious how it would look for some of the extreme noisy renderings we see sometimes here around.
I tried just a little with nothing to show about, but i have no Photoshop and time to make real tests.

Usually I'd say you're right Ulco.
In this case I found out in tests, that most of the render time is used for the clouds - especially in the zoomed frames (horizontal fov at 1)
But so far I don't want to give up that cloud setting.

The trouble (and bluescreens) with the pops appeared while working on them with another opened TG instance for copying and with many of them shown as textured. Meanwhile I have learned to take care not work on several pops at the same time. Another thing that helps is not to forget pausing the 3D preview render.

When the pops are set and saved into cache files, they don't make trouble any more. Especially since TG4 - Good work, Oshyan and Matt!
But I'll keep my actual pop limit to not coming over the memory limit of 32GB at pixelplow :)
But at the moment they are rendering at maximum 40% memory usage - means, they are no problem.

Great render. I can imagine you traveling and rendering away in this terrain. Only thing you need to do is clone out some holes upper right or use force all edges.

To decrease rendertime you might need to replace further pops by procedural veggies. Less heavy and faster.

Thanks for the suggestion, Ulco.
I already had solved it by changing settings of the vector displacement shaders, when you wrote. Worked as good - but thanks anyway :)

The street is now as I want it.
I am not so sure if I want the grass area on the right growing into the street. Additionally I'll perhaps add some hazel bushes next to the rail guards... But then I'll have reached a limit. These 6 renders are AA5 and Detail 0.5. They needed app. 6 hours on pixelplow. ($4.59 at power 1.7 for these 6 means it will not be a cheap animation when I start rendering the whole 600 frames)

The amount of pops and instances is at the limit too... 2 bluescreens while working on it (but I must admit I had a second instance of TG open to copy objects and settings...  ;D
But my blockhead just wants that animation with an extreme zoom as the 6 testrenders show (Frames 001, 113, 225, 337 449, 561) :
