Cumulonimbus and Anvil, Frank Basinski (3D)



Title: Cumulonimbus and Anvil
Name: Frank Basinski
Country: Germany
Software:

Hi,

I'm new to CGSociety and would like to introduce myself through the submission of this image. I have used Terragen 2 exclusively to create it. Volumentric clouds and terrain are completely procedural, no image maps used. Comments and critiques are welcome.

Cheers,
Frank Basinski

Wow, good work, but mountains in the right corner are too dark... And can you show mesh for us?!
Really nice!

Terragen is an awesome piece of kit! Cant wait for all this to be real time!

Well done on your setup

Really beautiful

Thanks for the warm welcome :-)

Yeah, I agree Terragen 2 is a very cool piece of software, especially when you judge by it's output, and within its primary purpose of being a landscape render.

There is no mesh I could show.. as I wrote the whole landscape and sky are procedural only. If I had eternal time and a big render farm, one could render a movie and fly around the whole planet perpetually, zooming in to the smallest grain of sand and up to orbital view, without ever having to change a thing in the render setup. Could be a bit boring after a while, though

If you're interesting getting started with TG2 yourself, I could tell a few places on the web that have pretty good documentation and tutorials.
Please let me know if anyone's interested in that.

On a personal note, I also run a little website that shows some of my other work - see my signature for the URL. But I'm hoping to submit one or the other image of mine through CGSociety also, going forward. I find this a pretty inspirational place outside of my little TG2 boxed horizon

Cheers,
Frank

I like the "big" feel of these clouds, nice render.

Lovely scene, Frank. Your expertise is showing (no need to zip it up, though).

Loved it..wonderin how hard it is to learn terragen!
 
  02 February 2009
wow very nice work. love the clouds man. and very good composition aswell.
 
  02 February 2009
Thanks again everyone :-)

@anishmations: it's hard to tell "how" hard it is to learn TG2. I would say probably slightly easier than more general purpose render packages. But you'll never know until you try and find out ;-)

There's a free version that just has a few limitations such as a max render size, but other than that and one or two other constraint, it has the same functionality as the commercial version - so it's the perfect version to try TG2 out.

Cheers,
Frank

As a Terragen Classic and Terragen2 Enthusiast, I can say without a doubt those are some of the most fantastic and realistic looking 3D clouds I have seen!

Hello Frank, welcome here.

Your renders( here and on your site) are absolutly stunning great!
How long does it take to render a frame, lets say on a Q6600 2.6 GHZ?

The Qualitity of TG2 compared to VUE is amazing!
