I don't know if this one will be really useful, but it may be fun to play with.
Tell me what you think :wink:

New Macro : Distorsion II

I don't know about anyone else, but I think this one is really cool! Looks like it could be good for dunes, sawtooth ridges, and several other effects, just as far as "realism". And a whole lot more for surreal and abstract landscapes. Great work.

Here's my first image using a terrain from it. It was the last device in the network aside from 2 erosions. Before it are a series of chooser-blended perlins.

Very good!.. I didn't understand it quite well at first, I needed to take a look inside the macro.. It really looks promissing for ice-eroded mountain ranges, like I recently saw on this photo (mountains on the bottom right quarter of the image).

Curiously, I didn't expect the distortion would work that well for that effect..

Nice work.

It's nice if you like it :D
I've done my latest pic with this macro.

I've positioned the camera parallely to the lines made by the macro :


A fluvial erosion filter allowed me to create a flow map, that I used to brighten the surface map. As the camera is parallel to the lines, it creates the illusion of some rays...
