A procedural moon made with blender's cycles nodes.
This blend uses the "Experimental" Render Feature-Set, to achieve a combination of bump and true displacement "Both" ; Hope some of you find this useful :)
Does this work with the regular feature set?
Yes for sure it will ! but you will then only be using bump or displacement, not true mesh displacement.
Thanks a lot Admins ! for making this a Staff Picks ! very appreciated...
Wow! this looks great man
Thanks Red :) yeah not bad at all...
Very impressive! I'll have to download it to see how it was accomplished:)
Thanks ! :)
You must be some kind of procedural node god sent from Procedural Node Olympus to show us procedural node mortals how it's done.
Ha ha ! and I am only getting started ! thanks for the comment ;) ; It's nice to realize that all those endless hours spent on Blender are finally paying off...
Whoa! This is great, you've done an amazing job here, thanks for share!
With pleasure... hope you make something really nice with it ! :)
That is the most amazing thing I've ever seen in the 3-D rendering world I really expected to see a UV map but to my amazing surprise everything done with shaders and nodes in incredible job man really really like it
Thanks a lot ! Yeah ! it's pretty cool to see what Blender-Cycles can render without having to go through the whole texturing process... Hopefully with the next Blender releases, we will have real time and true displacement with the 3D-View Editor...
Have you played Elite:Dangerous? They take kind of the same approach to generate planet and moon surfaces but in real time! With their latest update you can even land on planets and find all sorts of details and craters and so on, pretty amazing! :D
Same idea here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBYRIZA44Eg
Nope, still have not got around to playing Elite : Dangerous ; But I have been tempted to get it a few times... Who knows ?! we might be able to have such a thing in a few years if ever Blender gets revamped ! ;)
I allowed myself to use this blend in my video clip:
Very good job :)
If you want, i can put this link in the description of the vidéo clip, tell me...
Thanks a lot ! sure, if you want to post a link back to this page so others can find it, then why not :) ....
Very good job ! YOu have other model like this ?
Thanks ! No nothing else yet, sorry ! ; Eventually I will make something else...
very, very impressive. If I had more clue about the node math I would be able to appreciate even more.
GRACIAS POR COMPARTIR ESTO..!!ME ENCANTA EL TALENTO QUE HAY EN ESTE LUGAR.. SOY MUY NOVATO, Y HE APRENDIDO MUCHO DE PERSONAS QUE COMPARTEN DESINTERESADAMENTE COMO TU, GRACIAS...
Gracias ! No hay de que ! ;)
Great share. Thanks :)
glad to help :)
Thanks ! I'll try to make a Version 2 asap...
