Bryce 2, the landscape-generation package from MetaTools, lets you create enticing, beautiful scenes, and this updated version of the package has so many new features for doing so that it's hard to track them all. For help in learning about how Bryce works, check out Real World Bryce 2, which covers both the Macintosh and Windows versions of the product. The writer starts off with a discussion of hardware requirements, camera and view controls, and objects and selection tools. Then she delves into customizing the Bryce interface; editing your work; creating complex objects and using Boolean operations; working with the Terrain Editor and Symmetrical Lattices; creating textures; creating atmospheric effects such as fog, sunlight, and clouds; and working with lighting. Finally, you learn about rendering your scenes, working with external applications, applying what you see in the natural world to what you produce in Bryce, and outputting your work
Throughout the book, the author explains Bryce's features in great detail, so much so that the book will become an indispensable part of your work. Several full-color inserts show you some of the artwork discussed in the book. The included CD-ROM has sample files, software, extra tips, and more.
