GeoGlyph 2.0

Worlds you've always dreamed of


GeoGlyph 2 introduces a new terrain synthesis engine for World Machine, along with multiple interface modernizations. This plugin catapults innovation across 4 core areas: erosion, geological effects, color production, and the UI.

The Power of Erosion

GeoGlyph 2's new render engine produces 7 unique forms of erosion that change the predominant heightfield landscape today. These potent new erosion devices - NeoFlow, Stratifier, SandBlast, RiverErosion, Hydro, Vortal, Buildup - will shape your flow in uncommon directions. They also complement World Machine 3's river tools.

Generators

Creating the core shapes of your terrain can be tedious task. GeoGlyph generators provide a headstart to get your terrain going with several common shapes such as hero mountains, dunes, valleys, and more. These macros will do the heavy lifting for you, leaving you to focus on your artist vision instead of technical plumbing.

Effects

GeoGlyph 2’s effects are powerful visual effect filters, inspired by image editing packages like Photoshop®, but adapted for terrains with a focus on raw shape alteration.

These effects marry the impact and drama of your heightfields with a high degree of realism. Unique contour warping and reprocessing techniques create distinctive results, new to CG terrain packages.

 

Effects are a new addition to the World Machine universe. They are a hybrid between a Filter and an Erosion device. Rather than simply processing the terrain, the Effect devices produce a unique modification.

Adding an effect to your graph lets you achieve far more complex results than with Filters, and you can automatically alter the entire subsequent graph to craft radically new types of terrains.

Concept to complete textures

One of the most robust new offerings in GeoGlyph is GeoColor, an advanced gradient device that can create textures from a photograph with a single click.

GeoColor can learn color patterns from a photograph, then allows you to pre- and post-process color gradients generated from the image. A modern gradient editor provides minute control over every aspect of the process, while post-production effects provide realistic scattering and diffusion for the final texture.

Macros + Devices

Designed with a deep understanding of environment artists' requirements, GeoGlyph macros and devices provide complete solutions for common tasks.

Environmental effect macros provide realistic natural terrain processing. Superficial macros produce visual surface detail without altering the general shape of the terrain. Erosive macros create multi-layered erosion. Texture generator macros make extremely sophisticated masks for colorization. Utility macros ease everyday tasks and pain points.

GeoGlyph 2's expanded library gives you twice the amount of devices than World Machine itself - something for every scenario.

A suit of armor for World Machine

GeoGlyph 2's brand new Integrated Design Environment (IDE) elevates the World Machine experience with cutting-edge productivity tools and a modern, intuitive interface.

A mechanized exoskeleton for World Machine, the IDE changes your process from the beginning. Instead of launching WM directly, you launch GeoGlyph which in turn initiates WM and wraps the IDE around it. This unified minimalist environment features a compact new toolbar, instant search, redesigned sidebar, Build Stack, WIP Recorder, Enhanced Editors, and more.
