Title: Atmosphere Examples.
Post by: njen on December 22, 2006, 11:24:57 AM
In an attempt to gain intimate knowledge about how every setting affects my output, I started to document the differences I get when I change a single value. I decided to make a web page out of the results I have so far, in order to share what I had.

This page is extremely simple, as I didn't really spend a lot of time on it. It's main focus is to deliver the necessary information as simply as possible.

I started with the atmosphere controls, and in the future I hope to expand to the other areas of the program.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone. I just did an up date of the page to neaten it up a little. I also added my first 3D cloud part.

Excellent work! I have intended to do something like this in the past for both TG 0.9 and TG2, but it is fairly time consuming so I haven't yet. Kudos to you for doing so. :)

Might I suggest this go in User-contributed tutorials? If you make it complete enough it might even make a good addition to the documentation.

Oshyan, you may move this thread where ever you see fit.

Plus I just updated the page with some more settings of clouds. Might I also add that the jpg's on my site are relatively low quality. Sometimes too low to see noticeable differences between different values. Soon I hopefully will put up higher quality versions.

Cheers!

Haha I was writing a tutorial on almost the exact same thing.  No worries though, I'll just modify it a little or something.  Thanks for the examples, they are definitely great for learning the different settings for clouds and atmosphere.
