Only available as part of the INSYDIUM Fused collection

Part of our INSYDIUM Fused Collection, TerraformFX is the powerful, art-directable terrain generator for Cinema 4D. It allows users to build highly customizable landscapes by layering noises, shaders, textures, splines, and gradients.

Introducing TerraformFX

As part of our INSYDIUM Fused Collection, TerraformFX enables you to build terrains with ease; you can create an infinite number of landscapes in high resolution. Place mountains, lakes, and rivers where you need them. All aspects of the terrain generation are editable, so you have total control over your environments.


Why TerraformFX?

TerraformFX is fully art-directable; you can add mountains, hills, valleys, and rivers. Adjust and fine-tune using various filters. Choose from multiple blend modes, shaders, and masking options to make your landscape truly unique.

An intuitive and flexible workflow enables you to generate the geometry in almost any resolution.

Being fully multi-threaded means TerraformFX is fast and efficient, making use of all your machine's available CPU threads. 



Generators are a type of operator object in TerraformFX. Unlike filters, generators are used to add new features to your terrain, generating mountains, hills, valleys, rivers, and more. They can also be blended using the many available blend modes.

TerraformFX provides you with several different generators.

  • Noise operator
  • Shader operator
  • Spline operator
  • Gradient operator
  • Group operator



Filters are the second type of operator object in TerraformFX. While generators are used to add new features to your terrain, filters will alter, adjust, and fine-tune it to your needs.

TerraformFX provides you with several different filters.

  • Adjustment operator
  • Curve operator
  • Fold operator
  • Blur operator
  • Sharpen operator
  • Clamp operator
  • Erosion operator
  • Mirror operator
  • Quantize operator



More Key Features

Terrains in TerraformFX are built from operator objects, grouped as children under a terrain object. The terrain object evaluates its child operator objects in order from the top-down, blending each operator with the result of the previous operators, and generates the terrain geometry from their cumulative effects.


Erosion Operator

This operator simulates the effect of natural abrasion and erosion on the terrain. Currently, three kinds of erosion are supported: thermal weathering, coastal and hydraulic. Hydraulic erosion uses both 2D particles and is fully integrated with X-Particles. Thus, enabling you to combine X-Particles modifiers for complete control over how the erosion simulation works.

Rock Object

The procedural Rock Object enables you to generate rocks and create custom rock-shaped objects.

Terrain Shader

With the Terrain Operator Shader, you can access the height field data as per object maps. Furthermore, artists can have complete control over masking to create any type of landscape material they need.
