In this DVD, Ethan Summers shares his techniques for e-on's Vue Infinite, an amazing landscape creation tool and general purpose rendering engine capable of handling scenes as large as 50 billion polygons. Starting at an introductory level, Ethan covers all the main windows and functions within Vue. He then discusses more advanced topics including strategies for creating ecosystems, methods for designing realistic terrains, and ultimately how to employ DEM maps through the function editor and in conjunction with Maya. Ethan also covers XStream, e-on's new plug-in for achieving seamless lighting and render integration with Maya and Max.
