TerraRay is an easy-to-use terrain rendering suite for your Mac. Create stunning artwork without learning a complicated and expensive application, TerraRay allows you to create realistic landscape images with just a few clicks while offering many advanced features for you to explore.
TerraRay features a state-of-the-art renderer which can simulate very realistic lighting using a global illumination algorithm. Every surface in your scenery reflects light onto other surfaces as in reality.
Simple yet powerful editor
The built-in editor has been built with simplicity in mind. You do not need to read a manual to create stunning scenery with TerraRay. You can simply paint an elevation map using the integrated editor and define where valleys or hills should appear in your scenery.
Create any type of material in TerraRay you can imagine: Earth, Sand, Rocks, Ice, Snow, Grass, Mud... TerraRay comes with many preset materials you can assign on any part of the terrain using different material layers.
TerraRay allows you to place models directly into your scenery. You can use models from the built-in library like trees, houses or cars or import custom models using the commonly used 3ds file format.
Realistic Clouds & Sky
TerraRay features configurable volumetric clouds. You can specify the cloud height, density, cover and size. Furthermore, you can control the sky turbidity, sun size and intensity and the general horizontal brightness.
Using the volumetric fog in TerraRay creates stunning visible rays of light in your scenery. The volumetric fog works with any number of light sources and you have fine grained control over the density and height of the fog.
Place grass, leafs or rocks anywhere you want in your scenery. Simply add a plants or rocks layer with a single click and use brushes to define where grass should grow in your scenery.
With TerraRay, you can create very realistic rivers, lakes or an ocean. Control the wave size, height, turbulence, the absorption color, the reflection color and many more aspects.
