modo helps make a DVD cover

modo was used to render the Rohr Aerotrain vehicle for this DVD cover for a railroad museum. My father's pencil drawing was used as the background.

Jerome Tillier put the DVD together. His video trailer can be seen on YouTube.

Zoomed out a bit for this Vue render

The terrain heightmap was imported from GeoControl 2 which I'm addicted to again.

The ground is just a very simple 256x256 procedural Vue terrain object that I've applied a GeoControl 4096x4096 TIF heightmap to both its altitude and bump settings. The terrain was then scaled to 500ft high.

I probably should have made it 1000ft to get a better scene scale. This GeoControl 2 video shows how to make similar terrain.
