Dramatic cloudscapes with Blender - possible ?

Is it possible to render dramatic cloudscapes using Blender’s smoke ?


Probably better bet trying to use the cloud generator

Sure it’s possible, but if you’re using cycles I don’t think the cloud generator will work (cycles doesn’t have point density texture support yet)

Someone did a tutorial on how to use cloud generator and then rather than point density they generated smoke from the particles and rendered in cycles…

Can’t remember who and don’t have a link but google is your friend!

If Cycles doesn’t work, then BI is what I can use :slight_smile:

It’s possible. The clouds in this are all Blender: http://www.blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?313335

Judging by the making-of video, he had painted background and only few clouds were made with smoke.

That’s it, some great results in that video!
