Making a Forest Tutorial

Part 1: In this tutorial we will create a basic terrain using displacement maps. The displacement map is obtained by using a procedural texture that will be modified later in Photoshop.

Part 1: Creating the Terrain

Part 2: In this tutorial we will be creating 10K textures in Photoshop, that will be later applied to the terrain model we created in Part 1.

Part 2: 10K Textures in Photoshop

Part 3: In this tutorial we will create Bump, Specularity and Diffuse maps for the terrain right inside of Lightwave. We will also create and texture the water plane.

Part 3: Additional Textures

Part 4: In this tutorial we will create a basic sunlight setup using HDRI images. We will also create trees using the DP Verdure plugin.

Part 4: Lighting and Trees

Part 5: In this last tutorial we will be populating our terrain with some trees, using Lightwave’s native instancing tool.
