I installed it and I'm amazed at what you can do with it. Incredible!!! Not only that but there are plug ins to add to it also and lots of tutorials to teach you how to use it. I just played around with it about 10 minutes and was generating realistic looking scenes. Thanks for the cool link Doug.

OK I built 3 pretty decent images. They are the basic daylight type images because I'm not good enough to do the sunsets yet. Did a few I wasn't happy with. This program is different than Photoshop in that you never work on a large open file. Everything is done in the Rendering Control preview window. If you change a setting on any other control window, you have to regenerate your preview in the Rendering Control window. If you want a larger view it will build one but it takes time to do that. The more you add to the preview the more time it will take to generate. It's really kind of fun to just play with. And for those of you who want realistic clouds this one makes some of the most realistic ones I've seen. Here's my first image.

Here's the second image. Light source was purely accidental. Actually everything was purely accidental.

On this image, I changed the camera point of view and added water.

Way, way COOL

DOUG:

Thanks for the tidbit. This looks like it has great promise for generating some pretty incredible backgrounds.

DJ:

A+ on the pronto examples. As we've discussed via PM, "pictures" worth 1,000's of words. Appreciate your sharing efforts once again.
