Parameters

Cloud Color

This is the color of the cloud. The default is white.

Use Point Color

If this toggle is on, the cloud color is multiplied by any point color.

Density

This is the overall opacity of the cloud. The opacity of the cloud is attenuated throughout the depth of the volume object. Higher values are more opaque cloud which reflects light faster.

Cloud Density

The overall density is multiplied by this value. Higher values are more opaque cloud that reflects light faster.

Cloud Density

This is the same as Cloud Density but is used in the shadow pass. This controls how much light the cloud will block.

Receive Shadows

If this toggle is on, each voxel tests for light visibility. Enabling shadows also enables self-shadowing.

Note

For performance reasons, it is recommended to use Shadow Maps for shadowing clouds.

Illuminance Angle

This is the angle of the cone, in which a test for shadows is run.
