Ok, so I have been using Terragen since late 2004, and I'd like to think that I have made some progress over the years. I was one of the later "classic" users to make the transition from the old faithful 9.43 to the meatier terragen 2. To many who were used to the classic layout and the ability to load pre-created scenes the new terragen 2 was, well, frickin scary! I know it confused the heck out of me when I first fired it up. And in all honesty, I'm still not completely sure of it today. Most of what I manage to make out of TG2 these days is mostly down to luck on my part.
So, when they announced the next generation of Terragen, aptly named terragen 3, I was slightly hesitant. Although, the new content library and the advanced DEM support are both very welcome additions. I can't help but feel like they are trying to combine the best of Classic and TG2. I've only managed to download the free version of the program at present, as I really grudge paying the upgrade price for a program that I may only use once in a blue moon. However, that said, if the program is easier to use for an idiot like myself, I may just take the plunge.
I know that a few people on my watchlist have used Terragen 3, so I ask you: Is it worth it, and is the functionality of the program better than that of it's predecessor? Any kind of thought, musings, comments or whatever is welcome.
