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.
