Terragen 2 (TG2) is now the primary development focus of Planetside Software. TG2 is a complete rewrite of Terragen from scratch, and is a significant advance beyond the capabilities of Terragen v0.9. Apart from being a much more powerful renderer, TG2 has a much more flexible architecture which will allow development to proceed at a considerably greater pace. Core Features Terragen 2 features the following as part of its core architecture : * Cutting-edge adaptive subdivision renderer. * Modular, plugin-based architecture. * Render entire planets, sweeping vistas, tiny rock gardens, or anything in between. * Import 3D objects for rendering. Export high resolution objects. * Render millions of boulders or trees using "instancing"; even billions of virtual objects * Add multiple heightfields to your scene. Use procedural terrains that can span an entire planet. * Apply almost "infinite" fractal detail to terrain and other objects. * Overhanging terrain using procedural displacements, image-based displacements, or imported geometry. * Volumetric clouds or fast "2.5D" clouds. * Production quality anti-aliasing and motion blur.
