Without being sure, it is probably TR2. But Presto v1.3 should give similar render as well. ;)

For me this is the feature I'm more curious to see. I find IBL cumbersome and I'd be very interested in having a deep knowledge of how to create the right effect with Thea's physical sky. I'm sorry to say this but the manual is very simple in terms of explaining the effects of all parameters.

Even if I'm using Thea's sky successfully, I'm always on the trial and error aproach and, for this, I don't think I'm understanding it fully.

I suppose that sun disk is a new feature as didn't notice sundisk on thea currently. Is it or am I missing something?

Will we get clouds anytime in the future? Something like this maybe?

Thanks in advance for what seems to be an hell of a release!

It should be there! Sun disk can be rendered now by all versions.

I guess so, but it is not a priority.

Thanks,

Giannis the fact that I didn't notice it doesn't mean it isn't there of course. It just means I wasn't aware of it, but I'll definetely try to take advantage of it...

Thanks for your reply,

Ok don't forget to model sun eclipse according to current date and geolocalisation ?

I think it can be done. It's not automatic, but using SSS and modeling the clouds gives good results.

I suppose that´s quite render intensive. Lumion creates ultra realistic skies with procedural clouds and render the skies in 1 second or less.
