My interest is in outdoor setting. Not buildings really, but terrains. Perhaps modo was not the best choice for terrains, but it’s paid for and I might as well see what I can make.
I would like to make a ‘water front scene’. Trees, rocks, sand beach and a lake or ocean. Are there any lessons or tutorials on this type of scene that I could make with modo? Lightwave and modo seem to be sister programs. Perhaps you know of some tutorial/project LW water front scenes that I could learn from.
Do I need to buy any third party software for trees, rocks, water, clouds, etc and import them, or should I make them? I would rather build than buy items/models, but perhaps it’s not practical.
And finally, are there any books on the subject of making outdoor terrain settings? Hopefully modo or Lightwave native.
I suppose I should be using something like Vue d’Esprit or Terrain maker, but for some reason that does not sound like much fun.
