Runtime DNA's TerraDome
A Revolutionary Atmospheric Landscape Generator and Daylight Rendering System for Poser 7, PPro and 8
TerraDome is a revolutionary new atmospheric landscape generator for Poser. It features a 360° skydome with sunlight and shadows that actually track through the sky. With fast rendering atmospheres, realistic hills, and mountains, creating realistic outside environments and daylight rendering has never been easier.
All terrains are created from the highest resolution digital photography. An expertly implemented shader system easily mimics the ruggedness and detail of real world terrain. These enhanced materials blend perfectly with TerraDome's outdoor lighting offering a wide variety of terrain styles from lush green grass to rugged, detailed rocks and technology that realistically blends two different texture maps into one material to add extra realism.
There are three zones that form the foreground, mid ground, and background of the environment. Each zone has its own separate geometry and accompanying morph targets. Each zone is completely rotating to a full 360° . Extra zones can be added to create bigger environments up to a full 360° world. The zone system is constructed to use "only" the amount of terrain you actually need in your scene. This does not just apply to the zones themselves but the injectable morph targets, and terrain shader system.
Morph targets for each zone dramatically enhance each scene with distant mountain ranges, low lying soft hills, and rough foreground Terrain.
Fast rendering atmospheres have been created to mimic naturally occurring real world distance haze. More than just that effect alone, there are several different atmospheres like sandstorm, thin haze, thick ground cover, and several more.
Using texture maps at 8000 pixels wide, the skydome renders at the highest realistic quality, using photographic real world skies. The Skydome texture sets come equipped with an innovative lighting system, that allows sunlight to move automatically around the sky through 360° , casting natural looking daylight shadows. The light sets and skydome texture sets load at the same time from one lighting file for each TerraDome environment system. There is no need to load lights and sky separately.
Each light set comes with its own custom IBL light probe to enhance the scene with natural diffuse light. Global specular effects are also available with each lighting system.
TerraDome comes complete with six different skydome environments. These include skies with beautiful cumulous clouds, dramatic sunsets, overcast and stormy weather.
The TerraDome System has been built so that it will encompass most popular large architectural sets. It is large and expansive enough to render a believable simulation of a large landscape, but it is not so large that poser gets lost in the scene.
Other touches include technological tricks, like making the Skydome unable to recieve shadows from and figures or props in the scene.
