The external linkPOV-Ray 3.5 isosurface object is a very powerful tool to create realistic synthetical terrains. By combining different functions a large variety of shapes can be created.

With this project i try to create random landscape scenes on a weekly basis. The scene setup is done automatically using random numbers to vary terrain geometry, texture, clouds, sky, lighting and camera. I wrote some more detailed description about this technique.

Because of the isosurface and radiosity lighting, the scenes render fairly slow, therefore i render them at a resolution of only 640x360. They still take about 8-18 hours on an Athlon 1 GHz.
