Procedural Landscapes: Tuscany

Blog Post created by matthiasBuehler on Mar 18, 2015

Dear CityEngine community,

 

 

Believe it or not, but this whole scenery was created procedurally. In e-on software's VUE.

This image is the result of an 8 week online 3D Workshop (yes, late evenings and weekends!) I just recently completed (my second already) on CGSociety.

 

Everything is procedural: The terrain model, the vegetation (each plant plus the distribution), the volumetric clouds and haze. Even the main attraction: The almost too well hidden villa.
The villa is a procedurally generated model coming from CityEngine, which was manually placed.

Rendering this single image took about 26 hours on my quite fast hex-core machine. Minimal post work was done in PhotoShop.

 

I’m ready for some holiday in that villa now! ;-)

 

Thanks for your interest!

Matt
