Subject: How to animate clouds

versluis ( ) posted Thu, 11 August 2016 at 1:00 PM · edited Sat, 21 May 2022 at 11:49 AM

I'm trying to animate the clouds in the realistic sky, but I'm confused as to how it works.

On one hand, under Scene - Effects - Atmosphere, we have the Clouds Animation parameter in seconds. At the same time, when I edit the realistic sky and head over to the cloud layer, there are parameter for Movement Speed and Transformation.

So which parameter does what, and how do I get those clouds to move across the sky?

The default setting on the cloud layer is 3 mph. Push that up to 50 - 100 if you want see some motion.

Bottom line, play around a little bit. I think you'll see how it works. ;-)

Thanks for the tip, I've worked it out. Even with the highest setting the clouds still moved very slow, but nothing a little speed-up in a video editor couldn't fix.
