Bryce is a powerful, fast tool to produce realistic (and not so realistic) landscape and skycapes. It features fractal based tools to create mountains, skies and other natural features. It is very easy and rewarding to use once you get the hang of the unusual interface.
We have used Bryce on numerous occassions to create a strong spatial context for performance and publicity work. The background for this picture, produced as part of NT publicity, was created with Bryce with Robyn then superimposed using Photoshop.
