Dead Planet by nukeation Dead Planet by nukeation
My first proper planet render. Not really my regular thing, but I wanted to try something new.

The planet is dead - it's situation somewhere between Tatooine and Mars.

Vue 7.5 Infinite. The entire scene consists of just a single procedural terrain that makes up the planet.

How do you make the features of the terrain to be larger? When I use procedural/infinite in planetary mode and zoom out, everything looks like a noise (the features are very small and dense)

Give them a swift kick! That always works. :D

Actually, I use VERY large values for the MetaScale (250,000) and Largest Feature (180,000).

LOL - I don't think I'm that good at planetary scenes! This is the only one I've ever done successfully. But I'll try and do a Planet walkthrough (or just post this Scene file). ;)

I actually went to a planet like that while dreaming. In our language, the name translates as Nekron. It was also known as Deadworld because it was basically barren and dessicated, the result of a world war and a viral weapon. Basically, everything that survived became undead. Only, I don't think undead is exactly the word. I mean, they still reproduce. It's just that everything is born looking like a withered corpse, a slimy creature of flesh and bone with no actual skin, or a creature armored in exoskeletal bone projections.

...
Um... Yeah, that was probably a disturbing look into my subconscious. ^_^;

Very nice result of a dead world. Is there a way you can reduce the edge haze as it looks to bright/over exposed if that is a haze i am looking at. Other then that it looks very nice and real.

I have been in the planet business myself except all with 2d trickery.

Thank you. I'm very new to planets so I'm still learning. I'll try and control the haze in future renders.

I saw your work - very fascinating!

The haze might not be a bad thing as this world of yours is dead therefore lots of particulates in the air but i think the exposure looks to high. Maybe that is what i am thinking?

Still working on my earth world. It's hard because the challenge is that it is all 2d so faking the 3d aspect of it all is time consuming.

Ouch that's a tough choice here... I love the first three but I'd have to say the top one seems like it would make the best wallpaper... Though the last would be great as well.

epic on a f**king stick!
I must get Vue 7.5!!
I suppose you could use camera tricks to achieve this I saw a similar thing in Bryce using a glass textured sphere around the camera to use the refraction to get the round that was kinda neat

:iconnukeation:
nukeation Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009
Thanks so much, Rick!

The great thing here is that the actual planet uses atmosphere settings. A glass sphere would not simulate atmosphere that well. Plus you can have clouds (I will use clouds in the next render, since this is a dead planet). Spheres cannot achieve this level of detail, I think. Besides, you can actually go "inside" the atmosphere with the cam as if in the real world.

I said it simulated it lol
and as with all simulations... it pales in comparison to the real thing XD

Simulation still doesn't cut it. My team of ninjas order you to take back your words. Bryce cannot do anything close to Vue! :D :D :D
