Terragen 3™ is a powerful solution for rendering and animating realistic natural environments from Planetside Software. Create entire worlds from your imagination, or import real world terrain datasets and use Terragen 3 to create the most realistic visualisations possible. You control the weather, landscape, rivers, lakes and oceans, suns, moons and stars. With Terragen 3 you have complete control over the shader networks used for terrains, textures, micropolygon displacements, clouds and object distributions. You can reorganise the planetary shading pipeline to suit your goals. Place grass and trees wherever you want, as well as other objects in native TGO or OBJ format that you have modeled in third party software.
Terragen 3 is available in Creative and Professional editions, both of which have optional animation features:
Terragen 3 Creative allows access to the powerful core Terragen 3 technology at an entry level price for artists and hobbyists on a lower budget. Terragen 3 Creative includes improved Global Illumination, new noise-free Depth of Field, a Content Library, enhanced 3D preview with textured model display mode and improved performance, and much more.
Terragen 3 Professional is the flagship product in the Terragen 3 lineup, with the most complete feature set and a full complement of professionally-oriented tools. Building on the core Terragen 3 features in Terragen 3 Creative, Terragen 3 Professional adds render layers and elements, a Linux render node, spherical camera, FBX import/export, accelerated cloud rendering options, and more. Terragen 3 Professional is a powerful, production-ready application, able to integrate quickly and easily into most visual effects pipelines.
