Terragen 4 features are:-Hybrid micropolygon and ray tracing renderer optimized for large displacements and very large landscapes.
-Flexible global illumination system for accurate lighting at any scale, from close-up, to distant, to planetary scale.
-Render entire planets, sweeping vistas, tiny rock gardens, or anything in between.
-Photorealistic atmosphere and sunlight.
-Volumetric clouds or fast “2.5D” clouds.
-Multiple scattering in volumetrics, full light interaction between volumetrics and surfaces.
-High dynamic range output; generate photorealistic environment maps and IBL sources.
-Production quality anti-aliasing and motion blur that renders quickly and efficiently.
-Import 3D objects for rendering.
-Render millions of plants and other objects using instancing. Billions of virtual polygons are handled with ease.
-Node graph editor for ultimate control over shaders and textures.
-Flexible planetary shading pipeline.
-Add multiple heightfields, textures and displacement maps to your scene.
-Procedural terrains that can span an entire planet.
-Apply almost “infinite” fractal detail to terrain and other objects.
-Overhanging terrain using procedural displacements, image-based displacements, or imported geometry.
-3D painting of colours and masks that can control almost anything in the scene.
-Animation of almost any parameter
-Georeferencing options; automatic georeferencing for properly formatted GIS files, including GeoTIFF and more.
-Export high resolution objects from displaced surfaces.
Terragen 4 is available in Creative version ($349) and Professional version ($699) or Free Version which only be used for non-commercial purposes, or 30 days of commercial evaluation. More details can be found here!
