Terragen is an application for generating photorealistic 3D landscapes. With the help of this program you can create whole worlds with your rivers and lakes, weather conditions, sun, moon, stars, clouds, etc. Terragen landscapes can be used to place grass, trees and any 3D objects in OBJ format. Terragen is focused on the film industry - to understand how serious the functionality of this program is, it is enough to remember that the scenes created with the help of Terragen were used in the films "Throne: Heritage", "Forbidden Reception" and in the animated logo dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Paramount. The specialists who created Terragen have spent many years developing methods for generating photorealistic lighting, textures of the Earth's surface, the sky and other highly detailed environmental objects.
The micro-polygonal renderer included in the program is optimized for large landscapes and allows to calculate scenes of any scale - from a small garden of stones to the whole planet. The program allows to place millions of plants in the created worlds, which make up billions of virtual polygons, supports georeferencing and use of GeoTIFF files, allows to use almost unlimited fractal detail of scenes and objects, can use displacement maps and import geometry. You can also use 3D masks and painting, create 3D and pseudo 3D clouds, use global lighting and animate virtually any scene parameter.
- generation of 3D landscapes - from real to fantastic;
- full control of the stage;
- Animation of almost any parameters of the scene;
- import geometry created in other 3D editors.
