You're a genius. A program is only as good as the tutorials that are available.

I completely agree with WMFab. Nice work and using macros is certainly a good idea!
Great to see that there is a new World Machine version available.
Just extended my maintenance about one month ago.

Any information about Geoglyph available? Does it work with the new version?

Ok, so the main principe is making geometry in WM, then make different masks such as  Follow map, wear map, deposition map and Height selection mask, Select Slope mask, Select convexity mask and then use different materials to these differents masks?

That's exactly the way, I do it. I use the generated landscapes in Cinema 4D and use the maps and mask to apply materials or even as distribution map for rocks and plants with instancing. This allows close-ups as well as far away shoots.

Others use the maps to apply complex materials in apps like Vue (e.g. geekatplay)
Great news! I really like WM and hope to get a final WM3 version.
Thanks for the information. I'll wait for the 3019 support then. Just don't want to change the installation constantly and at the moment I'm occupied with other things anyway.

The link has a typo. It's http://www.geekatplay.com
Hopefully Geoglyph for 3019 is out soon. I didn't get it to work with 3016.

Which version of WM do you use together with Geoglyph. I have serious troubles with WM 3016 Pro and no solution so far. Thus I went back to 2.x Pro.

Great to see new tutorials. I bought some of them and the extra stuff you get is excellent.

Next geoglyph update is in the works, though I'm not sure when it will be released.

Good to know. I really like Geoglyph, as it makes World Machine even more valuable.
I'd love to see a good working support of the last Beta.

Unfortunately it seems that the Geoglyph team isn't very responsive any longer.
They say it works with the 3.x betas as well, but I had several issues. Sent an email some months ago, but got no response so far.

Seems they are occupied with Tor, as World Machine development continues very slowly.

@Vision4Next: You can try these for geoglyph. They are a bit dated though. Something is still better than nothing imo.


Thanks, I've seen them. I really wish that Geoglyph would work with 3016. So far it only works with 2.x without problems.
Nevertheless it's really a great addition to a great program.

I also would love to see some tutorials for Geoglyph.
I use the latest 3016 with Geoglyph, but unfortunately this does not work. If WM3 gets a final release, then hopefully Geoglyph will be updated as well.
I don't think Tor will be an option soon and all other solutions have their drawbacks as well.

Thanks for the link, but every now and then a new tool arrives and most of them disappear again soon. That's really annoying.
I really wish there was more stability in that sector.

I have similar issues. There are some problems with 3015/3016. There are things missing.
It works well with 2.x Pro.

Hopefully Geoglyph will get another update, as Tor is still in beta and no alternative so far.
This looks really good!

I really wonder about his strategy. Maybe it would be better, if he gives the program into someone else's hands.

Depends on what you want. Maybe it's better to make it in meter and then scale the mesh by 1,000.
