Thanks for a great upgrade, i tested it a bit on some of my archvis projects and it works nice. It is pretty accurate, flexible and subtle, although i see it is in early stages of development. It has great potential!
The advice i have is maybe considering the apparent size of the sun - although it seems it is about that size in reality, it actually is not, it is 50 or 60 per cent smaller, you could browse some photos for reference. It is not a big issue, but i think the setup deserves to be top notch
Another minor issue - ‘cloud size’ and ‘cirrus size’ would be better described as ‘cloud amount’ and ‘cirrus amount’ - avoiding confusion with ‘scale’…
Does anyone know if this is likely to work on a Renderfarm? I’m thinking they’ll be a problem with how the script is embedded. Would my best option be to pre-render a sky video? That seems a little overkill. I’m working on a project that could really do with a 5 min sunrise to sunset timelapse, and I wander if this is the way to go about it.
Also - are there any tutorials out there on using this addon?
Having played with this a lot, I have to say I do like it.
However, is there a way to change the horizon position. Frequently if I create an outdoor scene the ground plane will never extend far enough to obscure the pale green ground that the plugin provides. I’ve tried tweaking all of the mapping nodes to no effect. I expect it’s something simple, but eludes me all the same.
Even better would be a slider on the custom controls to alter the height of the horizon.
