Default Terragen!

I downloaded the trial for the third time or so, but I still find it VERY annoying that I cannot seem to produce decent images, in regard to pixelation.

The test images are rendering as a really bad and blocky image. This has something to do with the maps i guess but what is the solution???

The rendering-settings are at full quality and of course below the pixel-size-restriction.

It... is... so frustrating to see great Terragen renderings around the web, and I'm still sitting here with really bad renderings.

Any terragen users out there?

What's the render quality at? That looks like the preview setting.

Oh, preview...

Yes, I see !

Heh, didnt know it affected the main rendering. It "should" have only effect on the preview, since this setting is put right under preview. But I'm not complaining.

Isn't the trial version limited to only a certain amount of antialiasing?

Can't remember...

I have used Terragen a bit, but much prefer Vue d'Esprit for landscaping. Really nice program and cheap as hell, list is 199.00 USD
