    Link gw::TerraNoise - Awesome Terrain Noise Generator

    Found this program over at CGTalk...its VERY cool for generating noise based terrain displacement maps as well as normal maps and whatnot...I'm just now playing with it, but here's a terrain map I generated using a ridged multi with a curve modifier.

    I'll post a render shortly.

    Download the program (and other cool utilities) here: http://www.guruware.at/main/index.html

    This is fantastic Arcana. I put together this rather inhospitable planetary terrain, using the Terranoise Generator and the Gimp in five minutes flat. The underlying terrain is based on a rideged perlin.

    Great find.

    Yeah There's all sorts of things you can do with this thing...make sure you also experiment with the spherical projection and cylindrical projection. You maybe could get a good globe perhaps?

    My render didn't go too well...I put motion blur on it and it screwed it up, I'll try again though.

    Hmm when I click on 'none' in the exporter I get a 'no map exporters available message' - am I doing something wrong?

    Did you link your generator to the exporter?

    Each thing that you create on the board has to be linked from the left to right...like in this screenshot.

    Yeah...I kept the directory structure of the zip file that came with it and just extracted it into a folder into program files called terranoise.

    Still no joy . I'll try emailing the author. In my explorations for an answer I found another ground terrain generator, Gugila, here

    The full version is expensive at $180, but there is a free lite version. The only problem is that you need either 3d max or autodesk for it to work.
