Sierra Nevada

By neutrix
Sierra Nevada

Geocontrol + Vue

23+ Billion Polygons and an 80+ Hr render. Luckily Vue has the ability to resume renders (although it did mess up my indirect lightning). I took probably a couple of hours to setup the scene, until I started doing some renders. It was worth the wait!

I painted the ecosystem (which was pretty fun). What took the longest, besides the render, was probably getting the right distance with the camera to get a "realistic" shot.

Onto the next project!

Oh, wow, the trees might be a little bit rough (difficult to say, though, since the siye of the drawing is rather small), but the mountain looks perfect to me!

This is beautiful! I used to hike in those mountains ;) and I think you captured them perfectly! :love: Wonderful job- I love the touch of "fog" used over the trees in the valley! :heart:

Looks amazing!! What part of it was made withe Geo-Control??
neutrix's avatar
Thanks! The main mountain was the one created in Geocontrol. I then imported a TIFF map (generated in Geocontrol) into Vue. I used a few other terrains as "fillers" to so I could place/paint the ecosystem exactly how I wanted it.

Absolutely stunning!Can you tell me the specs of the computer you rendered on,please?
neutrix's avatar
This was rendered with an i7-860 CPU with 8GB of RAM, that was back a year ago. I'm sure there's ways of improving the render time, and optimizing the image... need to work on that! :)
