The Unveiling -- Updated 01/25/12I’ve added “The Unveiling” to the Members Gallery this morning. This is a sequel of sorts to Enshrouded which I have put together to test out Vue d’Esprit 10’s “Advanced Cloud Modulation” techniques.

Basically it allows me to contour the cloud layer to the curve of the terrain, so they appear to drape naturally over the landscape. It’s a tricky procedure which I hope will be made simpler in future versions of Vue (so I don’t have to edit height maps in Photoshop hopefully). To be honest I’m not even sure the effect is all that noticable in this render.

It is a powerful tool however, and one which I hope will bear more fruit in the future.

Your thoughts?
