World Machine!

For all of you Terragen lovers out there I have found a great program that you can use in conjunction with the Terragen program! (Actually I didn't find it - the good folks at Renderosity's Terragen Forum recommended this program.

It is a separate program that lets you create and modify 3D terrains that you can then import in Terragen. You can build some stunning-looking terrains with this program! I'm still learning it myself and you can see my progress so far:

You see, with using the Terragen program you can still create some good-looking terrains like so:

But with the World Machine Program you can also import .bmp files into the World Machine Program and add different "filters to it and get some very good looking effercts.

Here is currently a work-in-progress that I am currently working on:

It's called:

Ancient Ruins!

You can find out more about World Machine (including a free download of the program) by clicking here!

My 3D Page!

Long before I had this blog, I had a 3d website where I posted about my interest in 3d designing. The site was hosted on AOL. However AOL has discontinued it's web page hosting so I had to move my page to another host!

Well I was finally able to move my 3D page! You can get to it by clicking here.

My page also includes some of my other renders as well as links to some 3d-related information such as free downloads and such!

I'm also thinking about selling some of my own object from this site as well!

Vue6 - I Am Still Learning!

As I said before I'm still learning how to use this program. I have also mentioned that I have the Personal Limited Edition and that puts watermarks and the Vue6 logo on all the renders.

I'm getting a lot more interested in this 3d program so I decided to find out how much the real version costs. First I found out that I have the Personal Limited Edition of Vue6 Infinite! To buy the full program costs $695. It is definitely on my "wish list!

To find out more about this program (and also where to download the Personal Limited Edition) just click here.

I'm currently on page 125 of the tutorial and here is how my work looks so far:

I'm currently working with the eco-systems aspect of Vue6 which involves being able to (and create) objects as part of an ecosystem. For instance in the picture above you can see some grass and rocks - all put in using the ecosystem option.

Instead of placing an object one at a time, the ecosystem lets you place as many of an object that you want and it even slightly changes the look of the object so that they all won't look the same!

My Fractal Page Has Moved!

Originally all of my websites were on AOL but since AOL has decided to discontinue its member pages I have had to move my websites elsewhere!

My Fractal Page has been moved to here.

This is a fractal that I created using the fractal program called Ultra! It is a very powerful program and it has a lot of options! You can find out more about this fractal program (unfortunately it is not a free program) by visiting my Fractal Page!

I also have a couple of other fractal programs as well but I'm still learning them and the Ultra Program is the one that I mostly use. It is a great program for creating fractals!
