Instant Terra

Ultra-fast edition: Change any parameter and see the result in real time directly in Instant Terra in the final resolution.

Ultra-fast generation: Create a terrain ultra fast and export it in several formats to use in your production.

Your computer no longer determines the maximum size of your terrain! Instant Terra handles terrains of billions of quads while maintaining a seamless workflow.
One project, one result. Your exported data will always be exactly the same.

Export terrains as heightmaps, meshes (FBX, OBJ, Alembic), color/flow maps/normal maps, and masks to work in your usual engine and tools: Unreal® engine, Unity®, 3dsMax®, Maya®, Clarisse®, Houdini® etc.
8, 16, and 32 bits are supported, including tiff, png, tga, bmp, raw, and OpenExr. More about exports...

Unreal Engine plugin coming soon. Stay tuned!

Instant Terra

Use and combine the different algorithms: Hydraulic erosion, rock erosion, mountain erosion, sedimental erosion, flow simulation, multi-scale erosion.

User control: Use masks to control where and how the simulation runs and achieve unique effects on different parts of your terrain.

The hydraulic erosion’s advanced algorithm generates erosion that doesn’t follow the world axes, which is often the case, providing results with more realism and diversity.

About Us

Who we are

Armed with solid careers in the gaming industry, we embarked on an adventure to provide artists with an ultra-fast terrain-generation tool created using innovative technologies.

Game play and design now exceed expectations and the space in which games are held span hundreds or even thousands of square kilometers. The tools available to artists do not allow them to take their creativity to the limits; most existing tools are limited, slow, and complex.

With this in mind, we created Instant Terra to meet these challenges. Our tool is ultra-fast and the results are visible in real time & in full resolution, regardless of the terrain size.

Developed through the creativity and innovation of a team of terrain-generation experts, we publish new features and releases regularly based on our roadmap and user feedback.

Instant Terra Composition of terrains

Showreel 2020

the latest terrains created with Instant Terra

Procedural terrain creation

Procedural tools bring power to digital tools: Instant Terra ensures a non-destructive, process, whatever the size or complexity of your terrain.

Standalone, node-based tool

Instant Terra links nodes to create graphs. Changing any parameter of a node at any time recomputes the graphs and the results are displayed immediately.

Maximum control in real time

Use masks to protect some areas from global actions, or use them as per-vertex coefficients to be considered by the calculations.

Final resolution

Work directly in the final resolution, whatever the size of your terrain, and see final terrain in real time with all its details.

Our Features

How we do it

Compose terrains

Mix terrains of different sizes and use a mask to drive the composition.

Paint masks

Paint masks directly in the 3D view and immediately see the results in real time in the final terrain.

Change the terrain size

At any step of your project, change the size or resolution of a terrain or a mask dynamically.

Simulate erosion

Create realism with rock, hydraulic, and mountain erosion simulation. Drive parameters with masks to create effects.

Very large terrains*

A 32k x 32k terrain? A 64k x 64k terrain? No problem! Instant Terra is designed to handled large terrains.

Ultra-fast import**

Import GBs of input data in a few seconds only.
Import several data files simultaneously to build a terrain.

Create and share your own nodes

Create components from graph nodes to reuse in your project, share between projects, or export to other projects.

Automation, live link, and callbacks **

Python & C# API for automation, C++ API for a live link with your tools, Python callbacks for integration with your Version Control System.

*Size limit depends on the version

**Instant Terra Pro edition only


Indicative roadmap. The priorities are subject to changes based on your feedback and needs.
