Hurricane by Smattila Hurricane by Smattila
Same render that I made for the collab with archang3lzz. I wanted to submit it separately too... Made minor changes and added a bit tilt

Rendered with terragen2.

Totally love this, would it be ok if I use this on a website I'm building?  It's non profit & creative commons licensed related to social work?  Link with attribution would be added of course.

With a little cropping, this made for a great wallpaper.
It would be super awesome at a higher resolution, but I've featured it on my blog nonetheless:[link]

Great work!

This is gorgeous! Any chance of getting a version big enough for a dual screen wallpaper?

I dont have this version rendered as big to fit 2 screens and I dont know if I have the original file to re-render it

Yeah. I've bought it. I think it was little over a year ago.

Great! it's a very realistic hurricane, even the surrounding storms seem to have been wind-blasted creating variations of feathery clouds and bubbling ones :wow: image-based clouds can be done in Vue too but I noticed they only work for their distribution and not so much detail, often resulting in tall, vertical artifacts of clouds like they have been cut out of the layer by the image map...maybe they solved that in Vue 8 but it often looks lousy in Vue 7 :doh:

Thanks. Yeah I cant really help with vue since I have no idea how its done in it. The key is to mix procedurals to the alpha map tho :)

Good, I would really like to know how to do this. Do you use a colour shader for the clouds, or how many layers and at what height, my hurricanes are pretty aweful. Oh and do you use a mask or nodes?

I had around 7 different cloud layers and like half of those were mapped with high res alpha maps. Those alphas were used as blend shader to the clouds power fractal to gain some additional bumps. The sequence goes like this: image map shader->color adjust shader->cloud fractal shader->the cloud. The clouds had height around 7-13k and depth pretty much the same. the scales of the alphas were something in xe06 and I didnt use a camera to project them... Hmm I guess thats pretty much it :P

How do you do this with Terragen!?
Reply
:iconsmattila:
Smattila Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2010   General Artist
You make an alpha map and project it to a procedural cloud layer. I had several alphas in this one and few pure procedurals on top of those too

I fell like such a noob here, considering the fact that I have no idea what you said.

To Terragen forums!

Well I understood Alpha, if that's anything. ^^;

I use alpha masks in PDN.
