Terra Editor
(in-depth look)

All right, let us go in-depth on showing the real capabilities of the Terra system. In here I'll go through all the main aspects of the Terra Editor and show you some of the really neat things you can do with it.


The image above on the left is the actual terra editor in DS. The image on the right is a rendered image of that same terrain that was painted on the geometry. Notice the fine detail on top of the ridge of the mountain. This is done by using the erode function. With it you can specify water and thermal erosion and get much more detailed maps out of this. There are more ways to affect terrain surfaces such as filters and texture map painting.

Now look at the difference when you apply the edge, smooth, and sharpen filters to the terrain.
