哪些軟件可以幫助我繪製行星。。。從太空?

因此,我想渲染一下我的世界,看看它在外太空的樣子。我已經繪製了地圖,並設計了各種功能(大部分是)。可以像拍攝一系列正交圖並將其轉換為三維渲染圖一樣進行思考。

我希望最終的渲染可以讓我拍攝行星的圖像,例如The Blue Marble(顯然沒有那麼詳細-畢竟是照片!-但從那個位置開始):

什麼軟件可以幫助我呢?

Terragen is a software which can create really beautiful terrain renderings, which it can also map on a sphere to create a planet.

You can use Photoshop to create 3D spheres which you can later shade and render underneath atmosphere and clouds. Using each of these elements as a separate layer allows you the maximum control over your planet. You can rotate them independently in and out of view as you desire. You can light your sphere from any direction with complete control over the source.

I personally don't use this technique often though, except for gas giants, as a sphere is much more difficult to detail to the extent that it looks realistic. Not impossible at all, it just takes more time. And for what I do, it's just not necessary. So the vast majority of my planets are 2D.

Using Photoshop can be tricky, and learning to make decent planets will take time. But you can come up with some awesome results.

If your interested I can create a tutorial on how to make a planet using Photoshop.
