tranquility by hoevelkamp tranquility by hoevelkamp
Hi guys,

well, I'm still here. Not very active though. And I guess you'd expect something spectacular as a comeback. Not today. Just a simple orbit shot. I put some serious hours in this one and I think I got the lighting right. :) Finally. Anyway, as always:

Enjoy!

Stunning vista. Can I ask you what kind of appoach did you use for this image? Textures, fotos, etc? And what kind of software? Vue, Terragen, other 3Dsoftware, Photoshop?

Thanks man. For this image, as for the most of my images, I used NASA satellite images as base for my textures. The satellite images were composed and edited in Photoshop. The final textures than applied to the planet in 3ds max (my main 3d software) For the lighting I used several lights to get everything like I wanted. Different lights for relection, overall lighting and so on. To get a better understanding of how all this gets together have a look here: hoevelkamp.deviantart.com/art/…

Great stuff. For the most part this should apply to "any" 3D Software-packagem which in my case is Vue for the time being. Only the filters for the dark or lit side of the planet is not available, maybe I can find something comparable in the Function Editor of Vue. Thanks for sharing all these great tips and tricks!

As you wrote in one comment, you said this is 8000x4000 texture. Is it on a 3D model or a photoshop spherize filter? Cause I tried to create a close-up with 8000x8000 texture in photoshop and it looked very pixelated and blurred.
Anyway, amazing, amazing work!

Hey, thanks a lot. It's a 8000x4000 texture tiled 7 times to get the details while getting this close to the planet. Oh, program is 3ds Max. :)

Oh, so probably just using photoshop is the problem.
Thanks and keep up on the fantastic work! ;)
