TerraRay is an easy-to-use terrain rendering suite made for Mac OS X. Create stunning artwork without learning a complicated and expensive 3D 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 draw 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.
Volumetric Clouds & Sky
Since Version 6, individual volumetric clouds or cloud clusters can be placed in a scene. You can control the density, size, sharpness, height and many other settings individually for each cloud cluster. Clouds fully interact with your scene, for example by casting shadows
