Terragen 2 2.2

Terragen is not a game engine; it has a sophisticated film- and broadcast-quality renderer and procedural modelling tools designed so that you can create the most realistic images possible without taking a photograph. Nor is it a general-purpose 3D program designed to render everything. We have dedicated more than a decade to specialising in algorithms that simulate skies, outdoor lighting, terrain textures, and to render extremely large and detailed terrains. Terragen 2 puts those algorithms in your control. When you need CG environments that don`t look CG, Terragen 2 will help you get there. If you want to go beyond reality, Terragen 2 is a toolbox with infinite possibilities. Terragen 2 makes this possible with the following features and benefits:


  • Hybrid micropolygon renderer optimised for large displacements and very large landscapes.

  • Render entire planets, sweeping vistas, tiny rock gardens, or anything in between.

  • Export high resolution objects from displaced surfaces.

  • Import 3D objects for rendering.

  • Render millions of plants and other objects using instancing. Billions of virtual polygons are handled with ease.

  • Add multiple heightfields, textures and displacement maps to your scene.

  • Georeferencing options; automatic georeferencing for properly formatted GeoTIFF files.

  • Procedural terrains that can span an entire planet.

  • Apply almost "infinite" fractal detail to terrain and other objects.

  • Overhanging terrain using procedural displacements, image-based displacements, or imported geometry.

  • 3D painting of colours and masks that can control almost anything in the scene.

  • Photorealistic atmosphere and sunlight.

  • Volumetric clouds or fast "2.5D" clouds.

  • Global illumination, multiple scattering in volumetrics, full light interaction between volumetrics and surfaces.

  • Production quality anti-aliasing and motion blur that renders quickly and efficiently.

  • High dynamic range output; generate photorealistic environment maps and IBL sources.

  • Node graph editor for ultimate control over shaders and textures.

  • Flexible planetary shading pipeline.

  • Animation of almost any parameter with the optional Animation module.
