That is really a great thing for us all. http://fewhacks.com/
I just based my landscape material on this. I just wish I could exactly figure out what is going on with normals, ao and displacement here.
That was extremely helpful! Thank you!
Morteza Ahmadi demonstrated a new script that allows creating terrain in Autodesk Maya. It will give users the ability to create detailed terrains in minutes.
The script is enabled b clicking a single button. Then it will automatically create a subdivided plane with a material applied to it. Users will be able to choose from a range of preset maps or add their own. The tool adds a 3D texture visible in the scene. It also shows a preview of the displacement in the viewpoint.
A ramp mode will allow adding a falloff for the effect. The ramp can be used to limit the area of coverage for the map and modify the height of certain areas. It is rumored that Morteza Ahmadi will release the Tool script very soon.
