I'm interested in getting some software for landscaping. Vue 4 is reasonable ,but I'm curious to know about the compatibility to LW 7.5 It could be great iy you guys out there using Vue with LW can give me some thought.

Thanks,

yeap, works fine. can import the terrain, but not the plants. ozone 2 is fantastic. way better than skytracer.

Thanks, I just ordered it.
Although my point is plant, but importing terrain is also good enough to get it because it still a lot cheaper than the rest.

Don't get me wrong, Vue is great at what it does, did you consider that lightwave has very powerfull landscaping features built in?

I created this image, with one polygon. Imagine the detail you could create over a mesh of say something like a crater.

You can use combinations of images and procedurals to get your desired effect.

Perhaps you can apply the same technique to the vue landscapes, though they may be very polygon heavy.

Sorry to rain on your parade!
