Green Lantern – Quick Terragen Environment Test

Terragen 2 test creation of flythrough Death Valley NOT USED in MOVIE

During my time on Green Lantern we contemplated creating the backdrops of Death Valley in 3D instead of matt paintings for the dog fight scenes.  I suggested NASA DEM’s and Terragen as a fast way and was asked to do a quick proof of concept – including showing volumetrics in TG2.  I ended up spending one evening after work on this (as one can tell ;P).  We were all pretty happy with it, but rendertimes, the lack of a linux version and our linux based farm meant the end of it in the end.  Hope Planetside eventually releases Linux versions of TG.  It’s a GREAT package and I would love to be able to use it more at work.
