Above the Clouds for 3Delight: Nimbostratus

Above the Clouds for 3Delight: Nimbostratus

Nimbostratus clouds form in a thick uniform layer at low altitude. This set includes three 360° scenes representing three different times of day. Each pre-assembled scene has unique materials and lighting to match the time of day; each includes a cloud prop that’s 333 meters wide, a sky sphere, lights with bounce/occlusion, and a ring of clouds that softly fades into the far off distance. You can load any of the props individually if you don’t need a full scene.

Beyond the included scenes you can customize the cloud prop with many material presets that control color, density, and volumetric effects such as shadow rays. You can expand the usage to create undulating smoke, dust storms, or rolling fog.

Instructions included. See the ReadMe for technical info and check out the forum commercial thread for product discussions.
