Projects / Geomorph


Geomorph is a height field generator and editor for Linux. It features tools for generating height fields from subdivision and surface addition algorithms, with fine control of frequencies, output to 16-bit PNG files from 128x128 to 4096x4096 pixels, a pen for drawing height fields chunks or craters, and tools for eroding, stratifying, and smoothing the height fields, or creating dunes and ripples. It offers a multiple window environment with OpenGL preview, undo/redo functions, and basic controls for Povray rendering. English, French, and German localizations are included along with English and French tutorials.
