Bryce for games

Can Bryce be used to make landscapes for games or is it just for making images. What I mean is, Could you make a character in a modeling program and then make it walk around in a landscape that you used bryce to make?

Nope. Bryce doesn't support deformation needed for an organic character.
Mechanical stuff is ok because it doesn't deform, but forget about making a person walk around.

Go for Blender, it'll do it all

EDIT: shit, i see what you mean. Yes, bryce makes landscapes (good ones, too), and you can try to put them in a game, but the poly count would probably be too high.

Hi

The polygon count for a fractal mountain in Bryce can be as high as 32000 polygons each.

To reduce the detail, means no real advantage to edit a patch in MAX.

Bryce isn''t useable for realtime landscape modelling, not for games. Things may change, but for now, we need alot more power to allow anything like that realtime.

Please also note that the actual "textures" used in bryce are actually procedural textures, bryce refers to them as "materials." They are proprised of an array of elements, fx and textures, and it renders the finish result on the chosen surface.

Games atm don''t use procedural textures too much due to the performance hit.
