    Thanks - Right now I'm not at all sure how I want it to look, also I may well have to make compromises to match what is practical.

    I see two main parts, opening of parachutes at high altitude, and...

    Yes, much as I thought, all a bit tricky.

    I'm thinking that dropping a parachute should be straightforward , deploying I can see getting messy.

    I'm also looking for general cloth tutorials I...

    Cloth dynamics, parachute, tutorial?

    Hi All
    I've just about managed to get a waving flag I like, but now I'm trying to work out something considerably more challenging.

    I'm working on animations of the Soviet Venera / Vega Venus...

    Don't visit the forums for a few days and it all goes nuts!

    Thanks to all for the thoughts, and conversions.

    The scale is completely wrong for depth of field to be relevant. That would make it look like a model, and a small model at that...

    I did a LOT of experimenting with the 1080p version, but in the end the complex lighting and subtle shadows really made a big difference.

    Thanks all, it took about a week to render in overnight bursts...

    It's the indirect lighting that's driving up render times.

    Thanks all, I will follow up on those links.

    I could never get the old volumetrics thin enough, and I'm hoping for a proper volumetric solution this time. I'm thinking particularly of cases like...

    Planetary Atmoshere's in Lightwave 2019

    Hi All,
    I was never very happy with my attempts at adding an atmosphere to a planet, (I'm talking whole planet views).

    I had something that sort of worked by adding a slightly larger sphere with...

    OK, I'm now about halfway through the RebelHill LW 2019 tutorials, and I am seriously impressed.

    They are really well structured, and were clearly planned carefully before starting, (Unlike a...

    Thanks, will give that a go - sounds like a 2019 thing, yes? Not really got to grips with that yet.

    In the meantime, I just finished a short animation of that terrestrial crater, and I'm rather...
  18. Gaea Terrains, and high polygon displacements

    Hi All,
    I've been using the new Gaea terrain tool with Lightwave, and I'm rather impressed. It generated high bit depth maps or OBJ files, and the Erosion options are wonderfully realistic - it can...

    Well, I'm looking for a way to show craters across the whole globe, rather than just along the terminator. This makes it possible to directly compare cratering on different parts of the Moon knowing...

    Dan - it's a displacement map - I see what you are getting at I think, but I really like the unwrap idea.

    Thanks for the help though.

    Thanks Lardbros, Yes! That sounds like a really good solution! Given the nature of the lighting I was expecting to end up baking it anyway.

    Really unusual lighting wanted!

    Here's an odd one. I'm doing things with a high resolution displacement mapped moon model. All nice and accurate.

    One of the bad things though is that, as with the real Moon, there are no craters...
