Param C tests
« on: July 05, 2016, 12:35:41 AM »
Some renders of one cloud setup changing only the Param C value. Used 0.0, 0.01 thru 0.1 by hundredths, then 0.2.0.3,0.4,0.5 and finally 5.0
Sun is behind the clouds with glow set on.

Peram C 0.5 to 5.0 does not seem to have much of an effect if any. Perhaps 0 to 1 is max? Interesting tests.

It clearly influences the translucency of the clouds. Thanks for testing.

Here are a few more tests using lighting from the front left. Values 0.0 to 0.5. I get a bit different impression of Param C in this front light.

A Param C of 0.40 not shown could be a good compromise. Not to dark and not to bright.
