Description
This model is intended for those who need nothing less then the highest photorealism for cinema quality renders.

Amasia is a possible future supercontinent that could be formed by the merger of Asia and North America and is an alternative to Pangaea Ultima. This relies mostly on the fact that the Pacific Plate is already subducting under Eurasia and North America, a process which if continued will eventually cause it to close. Meanwhile, because of the Atlantic mid-ocean ridge, North America would be pushed westward. Thus, the Atlantic at some point in the future would be larger than the Pacific. In Siberia, the boundary between the Eurasian and North American Plates has been stationary for millions of years. The combination of these factors would cause North America to be combined with Asia, thus forming a supercontinent.

This is a scientifically accurate rendering of the earth millions of years ago in the pangea Continent. Notice that the continents are of a differnt shape then they appear today. The shape of the continents is what scientist believe they looked like during this time frame.

It is the best choice available for cinema quality renders of pangea and other visualizations depicting continental shift.

The maps (8000x4000) are so detail, you can see natural rivers and lakes throughout the continents. These rivers and lakes are procedurally placed using a new method I developed so they are very natural looking and they span throughout the entire high resolution image. The maps look as if they were from a satellite looking down on the earth during that time period.

The pangea Maps presented in this model are a one of a kind. You will never see such a high detailed texture maps anywhere else.
