    The plateaued terrain in the back is really looking good lemo, Thats one of the best Zbrush terrains I have seen. How did you do that? I also like the special effects in front

    I converted 16Bit terrain gray scales into Alphas and can paint onto the canvas with them. So I can build up terrain the way I like without any steps. With grabdoc I save it and export it as PSD. IN PS I load and export it in the format the terrain renderer. I can also project it onto a sphere with a stencil in ZBrush and thus make a cool Planet. With the high polycount in ZB3 that sort of stuff will really take off.

    Here a 100% (except sky) ZBrush one... Took about 10 mins all together. Using the grabdoc for an alpha mask in PS is another slick trick.

    Thx lemo. I think you are right and this technique can be used a lot in pure Zbrush scenes when 3 hits. That really gives you a tremendous amount of control

    It's been quite a while... but I forgot about this thread. Now... V3 is out for a while and I decided to give my old brushes a try. And as it was mentioned before... V3 DOES deliver WAY more detail!!! I used my old brushes and alphas to create a 4096x4096 'landscape' which looked like this when exported:
    grey.jpg
    I was lifted from a ZP Plane which I edited in the highest possible subdivision. I did not save the scene and actually did not pay attention how large it was but my right hand was lame from subdividing .
    As before, I used Teragen to import and render the map.

    It did not look like much.... But when I changed the view the detail simply exploded:

    A Pixologia has been created! I added some water and got closer:

    A nice cloud layer gives it also some depth:

    Here's the final. ZB3 really packs a punch regarding the details compared to the past results.

    Another refined version of the same landscape file. It will become a mural surrounding two sides of an indoor pool. We'll print it on the 5 ft wide printer in tiles.
