Some artists said that Vue's volumetric clouds could be transformed into good-looking, realistic clouds. I thought it was time to give it a try and see if they were right....and yes, they were right! =D I haven't really used volumetric clouds, but from now on I'm sure I'll use them more often.
A somewhat increased Aerial perspective helped me get this low but very thick fog, and with a little postwork in Photoshop, I made the scene more fairytale-like...at least I tried to XD

Thanks for viewing! :)

Fantastic job on this. The realism is fantastic, as is the composition and detail. Lovely work....

Volumetric clouds are flat layers and they were made for volumetric atmospheres in the 1st place I guess (though I used them in a spectral atmo :D), but u can convert them to Spectral v1 or v2 (if u have Vue 7) cloud layers too.

Volumetric has less editable features but I still don't know everything about them :XD:
I gotta practice more with volumetric clouds too, it's really worth it :D

hmm...Spectral atmos are basically more realistic, but it is possible to make very realistic volumetric atmos too. When should u use them?? ...well it fully depends on the scene u wanna create.

Looks nice :)

Maybe the edge between the water and the land is a little harsh (no smooth 'transition';). With Vue 6 it's hard to get that right, i don't know about 7 with the water editor.

Except for that it's great :thumbsup:

you mean foam along the coast?? Yeah it's much easier to create foam in Vue 7's water editor, I even tried it but it looked...funny :XD: ...the island is too small :D
thank you :)

Yea i understand foam wouldn't look good here.

But maybe making the grass a little more like sand near the water, or adding small waves would do a great job on making it look better :)

Would one of those artists have blonde, spikey hair? :eyes: I've started on a pack of volumetric clouds to sell on Cornucopia, they'd probably just be a small, cheap pack so those can boost their volumetric cloud layers a bit. But basically, I'm working on them in such away that they appear near-spectral looking cumulus clouds when used in the actual volumetric atmosphere, but transform into swirling cirrus clouds that look way better than any of the provided standard cirrus cloud layers :floating: But any Cornucopia content I'm making is on hold since I have too many important projects first :work: Still, my next Vue scene has some cirrus clouds in the sky that were created with this method :nod:

hmmm....yeah kinda...as I remember, one of them was a kickass artist with blonde, spikey hair :D
Well, good luck on the Cornucopia pack :thumbsup: ...btw, do you use your saved atmos (the atmos in your packs etc...) again?? :D lol I've never used any of my saved atmos, though when I saved them, I thought I would :XD:

Lol, I rarely use my atmosphere's either, I like creting a new one from scratch eveyr time :D but they do make good "working atmospheres" since I just pick one closest to what I have in mind, and use it while making something since the preview renders are faster, then I'll set up the atmosphere properly nearer the end :)

A very beutiful and tranquil scene indeed! Regarding your points about the realism of the clouds, I think that Vue 7 does a good job. However I find that volumetric clouds are easier to make in Terragen 2D and very realistic indeed. That may be because I've only just started learning to use Vue. J. :)

yeah, even Vue 6 did a great job regarding the atmospheres, but Vue 7's improvements on clouds and effects are awesome :D. I have Terragen v0.9 (unregistered :D), but I'm not satisfied with the render quality :(
though I've seen some works rendered in Terragen 2 and it's much better :nod:

Interesting!I found Terragen 0.9 very unrealistic cumbersome. I have 2D and am very impressed with landscape generator as well as the cloud renders; it has a sharpness that I've yet to realise in Vue, though I reckon that I'm close. Vue has a much more friendly GUI and T2D's and Tv0.9's are poorly designed! On my wish list is that future versions of TG2D permit the export of landscapes for use in other 3D programmes, assuming that there micro-polygon system is compatible. J. :)
