For lansdcape scenes, I originally used Bryce, however I switched over to Blender, since Blender seemed to give me more control over how I wanted my scenes to look and also allowed me to add extra features such as character animation, particles and things like that.. From my understanding, these features are not implemented(or a lack-of) in Bryce, Vue, and other landscape generating software. Some people have also complained that Blender's internal renderer was slow, talk about Bryce...Not sure about Vue though. Also Bryce gave me a fake and cartoony feel and was not so realistic or nice on the eye.
