The first 7 of these pictures were made awhile back with Bryce2 in 1997. For the
money, $169, for Corel's
Bryce5, you can't beat this program for what it can do. It's very easy to
use and produces images on par with high-end renderers at many times the price.
The first picture "Islet Sunset" was created in less than half an hour of
opening the box on Bryce2 and I had never even used the demo or anything similar
to it previously.
When Bryce3 came out in 1998, it added more file formats AND animation. It also greatly
speeded up the rendering engine. Bryce4 improved again on an outstanding product
by adding more file formats and again improving the rendering and animation. Bryce4
came out in 1999 was subsequently purchased by Corel from MetaCreations. Bryce5 in
2001, came with more file formats and new built-in effects and enhanced editors. Each
version gets progressively better and interestingly, the price goes down over time!
Bryce2 was $199.
