    ok, another question, i was playing around with terranim and i had it make the script, but now i don't get how i turn it into picture files or an actual animation. i tried doing the "execute script" thing in terragen except it started rendering the first frame and gave me a bunch of error messages like "can't find output, check output settings ; not enough disk space" or crap like that and i've got like 8 gigs of free hard drive space. please help me soon thanks. also i was trying to use cam path and every time i try to load a terrain it flickers in the window for a while and it won't let me use it. thanks

    Due to 'Tacs constant nagging, the tutorial is now being written. It is very basic, and aimed at the complete beginner.

    Tac, check your mail.

    Mods, would you be interested in hosting this?

    Pete ....
    I tried your first (basic) tutorial alst night and it worked like a charm :D

    I am really looking forward to your next (in-depth) tutorials ... and hopefully an upcoming one for Animation in Terragen.


    Daft/Azeem/Max . . . PLEASE post Pete's Terragen Tutorials. They will be a MOST excellent addition and resource
    for TFN/Theater. (And maybe we won't see as many "forrests" anymore - hehehehe). ;)

    I have the same problem that...someone else did, my render image is a certain color after i render, the image renders fine and then before it stops, it goes completely grey or green or whatever color i set in a certain dialog box. Ive tried to change the camera height and pitch, nothing works. Now that two people have this problem, maybe someone can tell us what it is....

    I'm here!

    I have been really busy at Uni the last couple of weeks so I couldn't give any time to it. I am back on track now though.

    Antilles, I don't recognise that problem. Could you e-mail me your terrain and world file and I'll take a look.

    I have some serious Terragen problems...It cant render my pictures to photo realistic quality. It always get pixly and a lot of zig zag. This is very noticible when i render a picture with just surface without any mountains etc...its pretty ugly and it doesnt look good at all!

    What causes these problems???
    Im desperate!

    In your render box, look for the Quality slider, slide it all the way to the right. I missed this my first time playing with it too :)
