Foggy Bay
Foggy Bay


Foggy Bay
Description: I wanted to create a beautiful bay, for the family weekend visit. The terrain proved to be the hardest part, but I eventually got something I was pleased with. The models are from Rendered in Bryce 7 Pro, 64 RPPs and took about 7 hours to finish.

P.S.: Only today did I realize that there are too many compression artifacts in the sky. I need to save the image with jpeg's highest quality.

Very good fog work. I find that feature very fiddly but it works just fine for you. Very nice!

Very good fog effect. When saving from Bryce, use BMP or TIFF which are uncompressed. Here, jpg is expected. Depending on the size of the picture, you might have to set compression higher in order to not overrun the file size limit. I use a graphic app that can adjust compression in 1% steps and shows the resulting file size along with the result in a preview. This is very helpful to find an acceptable compromise.

Thanks! I too tend to not use fog that much, but it was necessary for this image. "Morning Bay" was just an after thought (wasn't really thinking of doing it at first), since I liked the result on this one.


Thanks! And yes, I always save to bmp. The original has no such problems, but when I compressed to jpeg, it seems I used a compression factor too high. I'll fix it when I have time :)

Aside from echoing Rashad's and Horo's comments and saying how good this and the neighbouring image is. And since Horo has already offered advice on the water refraction...

On the topic of Terrain generation, maybe these video's that have just gone up onto Vimeo would be of interest to you? > Bryce 7 - Roads onto a Terrain > Bryce 7 - Foam Around an Island > Bryce 7 - Working on DTE Generated Terrains

Thanks! I saw those in the forum and will have a look at them as soon as I have time! Especially the one about foam around a terrain :)
