Ok, figured I would start one of these as I always wanted to. Heres the terrain. World Machine & Terragen generated Power Fractal terrain. I have no ideas at the moment, so feel free to chime in, posting this will hopefully make me finish it ;) More to come

I set up a second camera that will come in hand later. Going to add more srf


Type N for Nodes and start typing the word camera, highlight the camera node, drag & drop in another camera node and plug it in to one of the renders .The active camera selector is the button low left corner of the 3d preview window with 2 camera depicted on it

Heres where this is heading, I decided to create a bunch of small villages to break up this never ending forest of palms. This is going to take a while but I think it will be worth the work.

Close up of the Village, I have some arranging to do and more props to add as well as a path to the boat.  Also some reflective issues on the straw roofs need to be sorted. But you get the idea. Village is from Daz

The huts still look too smooth (IMHO).  Are you taking these through Poseray?  Or doing it entirely within TG2?  Just curious.

I imported directly from daz. These are really low poly models so the detail out of the straw isn't going to be anything more than bump displacement. A higher AA, say 16 would make these look much better, these are raytraced @ AA4. However I  am not really concerned with anything but reflection at this point as the main camera is several hundred meters from these camps. I am just setting this one up to create a clip file of the camp to be duplicated for additional camps across the valley. Thats the plan for now anyway ;)
