Terrain plugin for 3ds max

The Terrain plugin for 3DS Max allows you to generate landscapes from real world elevation data in a couple of clicks. The plugin makes use of DEM data that is available freely on-line but instead of you having to locate the right DEM file for your needs, patching them together and importing the data manually our plugin allows you to directly set a latitude and longitude coordinate and the plugin will automatically locate the right data and import it into 3DS Max and generate a mesh to your desired level of detail. You are free to drag the location around and zoom in or out and the plugin will fetch any new data it needs and rebuild the mesh automatically. The data will be stored on your system so future alterations will not require data to be re downloaded. The eleveation data is sampled at 90m intervals and also for the US you can select 30m interval data for even more accurate terrains.

The plugin allows you to color your mesh based on height with a user customizable color table. The sea level can be changed and you have the option to cap the mesh. At any time you can change the mesh density and you can select to use a given vertex budget or set the distance to use between vertices etc.

Another major feature of the plugin is the ability to use Google Earth to generate textures for your terrains (you should have Google Earth Pro if you plan on using the images for commercial use). You can tell the plugin the resolution of the texture you want to apply to your terrain mesh and it will automatically produce the texture for you.

- You can now automatically save VFB output together with 3ds max output
- Capture image from render to texture at the end of the render
- Save animage while render is in progress or paused
- "Spacing" option for tiled images in stamper
- Added 10% option for prevview render
- You can now reset all the color correction panels
- Option to disable color correction and/or gamma for saved images.
- If a VFB+ v1.52 or earlier installation is detected, an option is now given to automatically uninstall the old version.

LuxRender 1.0 Released

3d exterior Luxrender
Luxrender is an unbiased rendering engine. The latest version of Luxrender 1.0 includes

- Improved GPU acceleration

LuxRender 1.0 builds on the GPU-accelerated "hybrid sampler" renderer introduced in v0.8. Hybrid offloads ray-intersection calculations to the graphics card using OpenCL.

- Updated materials
LuxRender 1.0 includes a new metal material, metal 2. Metal 2 supports custom colors and textures, as well as measured data from Sopra and Luxpop Nk files and arbitrary IORs.

- Multi-step motion blur

Motion blur in LuxRender 1.0 now supports multiple steps over an arbitrary amount of time, rather than a single transform relative to the frame time.

- Core improvements

Under the hood, LuxRender 1.0 features numerous updates, including a multithreaded film buffer, more robust networking, a new acceleration structure, an updated light sampling system, and numerous bug fixes.

- GUI improvements
The main LuxRender GUI has been cleaned up for better usability and aesthetics. The render viewport now supports alpha transparency.

- Network improvements

The networking code has received a lot of updates, making network rendering easier and more robust.


LuxRender 1.0 adds an experimental stochastic progressive photon mapping integrator. Rather than building a single photon map then rendering it as in traditional photon mapping, SPPM builds a map of the "view" of the camera, fires photons to light this shot, and then repeats this process again with a new rendering of the view and a smaller photon radius.

- Normal mapping
Luxrender 1.0 introduces its support for the Long awaited feature..Normal Mapping. Normal maps in LuxRender can be applied to any material, and (if desired), multiple normal and bump maps can be stacked arbitrarily on the same material using the multimix texture.

LuxRender offers support for 3DS Max via the LuxMax script
