World Machine 2 - Terrain 3D Modeling


+ After over two years in development, World Machine Software has released the newest edition of its flagship computer graphics application. World Machine 2 is the latest software package enabling digital artists to create and texture realistic computer generated terrain models. It features powerful tools for simulating erosion and other natural effects, and artist-driven control over every aspect of the terrain. The new edition improves upon its predecessor used for the past four years by 3D artists, video game studios, and movie special effect houses alike to create artificial terrain in 3D.
The creation of computer generated terrain has traditionally been a very laborious process. An artist would have to meticulously hand-sculpt all of the shapes or use hard-to-control procedural algorithms. World Machine 2 now offers a fast path to the creation of rich content, while allowing the artist to exert as much control over the specifics of their terrain as they wish.
Major features of World Machine 2 include:
* Powerful fractal-based artificial terrain creation
* A suite of vector-based visual design tools that allow customization of land features and lend guidance to the automatic terrain generation
* Realistic texturing capabilities using the rich contextual information available
* Specialized terrain effects such as fluvial and coastal erosion, snow and glaciers
* Graph-based user interface that visualizes the flow of terrain effects
* Rapid previews that show how every parameter adjustment and modification
* Ability to import and export common terrain data formats
World Machine 2 is available in three editions: the Basic Edition (free), the Standard Edition ($89), and the Professional edition ($189). The Basic Edition serves as a free trial, offering full functionality but with limitations on output. The Standard Edition contains all of the features listed above and is an excellent tool for the individual artist or hobbyist. The Professional Edition is optimized for users working with large data sets and demanding the highest in performance. World Machine 2 Professional Edition is available for $189 per seat. Site licenses are also available, allowing full use of the Professional Edition features on multiple workstations for a single price. For more information, please visit www.world-machine.com
