Alpine cloudscape


This complete scene/environment is based on my preset Clouds Layer 3. It will allow you to set a view above clouds and fractal Alpine shader – All surfaces are fully procedural. Ideal environment to start to fly above clouds, you will obtain a nice visual whatever the camera position and orientation.

The setup of this scene will show you how to configure Terragen 4 clouds to obtain the best of them and play with depth modulation.

Be careful this clouds scene is not compatible with Terragen 2 or Terragen 3, it is only for Terragen 4.

Here three examples of pictures based on this environment (plane model is not included in this scene but free models can be downloaded at
