No difference between final and position in texture? Surface shader may need a compute before it works properly (like blue node 'get...').

Well, surface shader preview displays correct mask.
You can check test tgd.

Indeed. I also tried the Compute Normal before I did my tests yesterday. I opened your file, and indeed it previews the Surface Layer correctly with the correct slopes selected. It just doesn't affect the Erosion.

To preview the masking of altitude constraint, the Compute Normal must be replaced by a Compute Terrain node, then the preview works.
The masking still doesn't work on the Erosion of course.

Oh well, it's a beta.. and it's an amazing one at that! I'm sure you'll find a way.


My earlier comments about it being slow were a bit overstated....

was working on my laptop....16 gigs quad core....and it was slow

On my desktop it is at least 8-10 times a 1.5 minute wait before a render as opposed to 14 minute wait....

Not sure why it is so much faster....250% more processing power and 24 gigs vs 16, you would think it would only be double or triple the speed



Here is a new version, with some bugfixes (masking by Surface Layer still not fixed).
Also this is important update because previous version will expire on Jan 01, 2016 (I forgot do remove this from previous beta). New beta has no expiration date.

Thank you.

About bugfixes in last version: discontinuity bug that Chris found should be fixed; shader now should not block color output of previous shaders; some minor bugs, that I don't remember.



Thanks! Is that just an update for the 64 bit version? The 32 bit one has the same size and date as the previous one.

(I've got machines of both flavours)

Thanks! This is my fault, here is fixed zip:
