A new dawn for terrain design.

Sophisticated and modern terrain design software for apex results in moments. Pioneering tools.

Gaea's leading toolsets make realism a baseline. Streamlined workflows let you easily achieve your vision and work in tandem with your team.

Superior erosion.

The industry's most advanced and flexible erosion algorithm empowers you to create unlimited unique and believable terrains.

Artist-centric experience.

Our ultra-modern interface and myriad conveniences stimulate creativity, not constrict it. Working in Gaea is fun and can help you set a new performance standard.

Realism out-of-the-box.

Even the most basic shapes you create can be naturally authentic, original, and breathtaking. Our superior erosion suite gives you multiple ways to erode your terrains. All processes were designed for maximum appeal with minimum effort.

Primitive-based creation for instant results.

Primitives and other procedural tools let you put together an entire world fast. Choose from an arsenal of primitives, including hero mountain, mountain range, crater, and dunes - all pre-prepped for erosion.

Draw Mountains. Sculpt Erosion.

Gaea lets you draw mountains, islands, and continents of any shape and size. Directed Erosion allows you to sculpt erosion in high resolution for fine detailing - an industry first. Even when you sculpt by hand, it remains procedural.

Data Maps. Color Synthesis.

Unique Data Maps and color nodes are the foundation of Gaea's color production process. By layering and combining these maps, you can create complex textures that rival actual satellite imagery. The Vegetation node lets you add delicate foliage cover, and the Synth node creates textures from an image with a single click.

Cutting-edge workflow.

Gaea offers three different workflows to support your task or mood. Whether prototyping, building complex terrains, or finetuning details, you can enjoy a dedicated, streamlined workflow environment that will ultimately save you .

New 2.5D Viewport, Light baking, and Stability Update

This is a crucial update that is recommended for all users and includes new updates released since was originally released.

Critical Stability Update

We implemented several new architectural changes that dramatically improve the stability and responsiveness of Gaea. Among many things, these improvements directly affect the viewport freezing bug that affected many users.

New Render Ee

This build features an important new change to Gaea: a new rendering system that now uniformly powers both the 3D and 2D viewports, as well as the new Light baking node.

The new system is a preview of the full version that will be included in Gaea 1.2 (the next big update). It features accurate real world lighting (with the ability to modify it for other-worldly effects), with controllable soft shadows, ambient occlusion, and more.

Other updates

We have improved color and gradient editors, and introduced a unified popup for atmosphere, water, and terrain settings.
