WIP clouds time lapse video with static camera above the clouds.



This is using a global cloud density map with resolution around 5km, which is driving the fractal cloud generator. Both the speed of clouds and dynamics of shape change are adjustable, although the wind speed is global and blowing always to the west.
What, are you God? Never seen such realistic clouds in a grapgic engine before, my life would be empty if Outerra do not end up as a flight simulator. In love for sure

Cameni, could we possibly see such a time laps video from below the clouds (at ground level). Would be great!

And that explains why most weather engines use cells........

Here is one:



Note that clouds reach only to 100km distance now, so the horizon is always lighted up even though heavy clouds went there.

When you are done, I'd like to see a non-time-lapse video.. Something like 40 minutes long. That is where the impressive happens. In real time.

I just held alt+ctrl+right arrow to speed up the time, which is the slowest speedup there, but the clouds are moving quite fast even normally (currently set to around 100m/s).

That looks promising! Will it be possible to alter the shape from stratus-like to cumulus-like?
