What's new in Terragen

  • Significant improvements to stability.
  • Soft shadows now render faster in some situations (undoing a change that was made between v2.5 and the first v3.0 builds).
  • Changed the way object handles/manipulators are drawn. They should no longer be obscured by other objects. Please let us know if you noticed anything unusual with the 3D Preview drawing.
  • Fixed a problem with the Populator 4 where modified instances might not initially be in their correct locations.

Terragen is a powerful solution designed to provide support for animating and rendering realistic natural environments.

Create entire worlds from your imagination, or import real world terrain datasets and use Terragen to create the most realistic visualizations possible.

You control the weather, landscape, rivers, lakes and oceans, suns, moons and stars. With Terragen you have complete control over the shader networks used for terrains, textures, micropolyon displacements, clouds and object distributions.

You can reorganize the planetary shading pipeline to suit your goals. Place grass and trees wherever you want, as well as other objects in OBJ format that you can model in third party software.

It's easy to find great plants and objects modelled by other Terragen users or elsewhere on the web.

Terragen is not a game engine; it has a sophisticated film- and broadcast-quality renderer and procedural modelling tools designed so that you can create the most realistic images possible without taking a photograph.

Nor is it a general-purpose 3D program designed to render everything. We have dedicated more than a decade to specialising in algorithms that simulate skies, outdoor lighting, terrain textures, and to render extremely large and detailed terrains.
