this is an Excellent article, the way its set out with the vids and pics. very technical but not rambley. I learnt alot out of it.
Bob would have been proud
Congratulations Lukas:) Amazing piece of 3D parametric shader:) thank You for sharing Your knowledge:)
The Wysilab team has finally released the 1.1 version of Instant Terra that boosts the power, bringing a number of new features.
New terrain generators: Ridged noise and Billowy noise.
These noises are standard modifications of the Perlin noise algorithm. They produce sharp discontinuities and patterns that resemble crests or creases. They are often used to create hills and mountains.
Work with color maps on your terrains!
Load an RGB texture either from an existing file or one generated in Instant Terra and use it as a color map on a terrain. If you mix two terrains, each with a color map, the color maps are also mixed.
Generate masks based on orientation…
… or on curvature.
Disable a node in a graph to make it easier to test with and without a node.
View a terrain as a mask.
Use Min & Max nodes for terrain composition.
