Gondwanaland by hoevelkamp Gondwanaland by hoevelkamp
Hi @ all.

Here's the next one. I must say I'm pretty satisfied with it. Had to wait 12 hours till the final render and till I could do the final touch ups in Photoshop.

Applications involved: Stratagen, GeoControl 2, Vue, 3ds Max, Photoshop

Original size: 4096x1862

Enjoy!

Love it! It puts me in mind of what the Moon possibly looked like to us a million years ago. Peace

I especially like how the horizon blurs with haze. Great overall render.Nice texture on the planet.

Very nice. Is this referring to the ancient supercontinent Gondwanaland? If so, this is pretty neat! The moon being so close shows how OLD this probably was!

Thanks a lot. Yes it is referring to the ancient Gondwanaland. The picture is not showing our earth though. I don't think our moon ever looked like this one. ;)

Once upon a time perhaps, but hell we won't ever know.

True. Sadly true. Unless I use the time machine from my Mars travel. :nod:

Very good indeed. Although I would prefer it without the roll angle on the camera. i think it breaks a litle the far horizon impact of the scene.

Thanks a lot. Well the roll angle is more dynamic. I thought without it the picture would have been a bit ... well ... boring. :)

Thanks a lot! The moon or planet in the background is a custom texture applied to a geosphere in 3ds Max. Terrain, water and materials were put together in Vue and then the whole thing was rendered in 3ds Max with the highest possible settings. Took some time but the result speaks for itself, don't you think?. :)

yeah its fantastic! im supprised you dident do the scene and final render in VUE itself, i mean i know its not vray but it can do photo realistic still :)

I belief the clouds render more realistic in 3ds Max. Vray seems to be not possible though. I tried rendering it with Vray, but the render stayed black. So I had to use Mental Ray.

The terrains are brilliant! very realistic as far as Canyons are Concerned, and the deep water gives the impression a what the Grand Canyon looked like halfway through formation :omg: The clouds definetily look more sensible in this one,and the deep red Mar's-like planet is (surprisingly) unusual too :)

I guess you guessed it already, it's the same terrain as in "Sightseeing". ;) I just had to work with it again, so many hours went into creating it. The clouds look better because I used higher settings and the Mental Ray renderer from 3ds Max. The moon was added in 3ds Max too. :)

Oh yeah, I thought the scene looked familiar...I think this version looks more realistic as a whole, while the other is easier to appreciate the terrain itself :)
