    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.

    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...
  7. 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...

    I already have a very high res realistic Moon, what I want to do is see features on different parts of the Moon >>under the same lighting conditions<<.

    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.
    Thank You!

    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...

    Got the results I needed via heat shrink on one axis, after a bot of experimentation.

    Anyone else using the tool, it;s well worth trying all the options.

    Forcing a morph to inflate a satelite

    Hi All.
    I've got 2 versions of an object, and I want to morph between them.

    It's actually an inflatable sub satellite, which starts looking like a square umbrella, then flips into something...

    I did a bunch of stuff like that years ago on here, got some rather nice volumetric light nebulae out. Lots of others joined in and shared the results - should be in these forums somewhere?
