|Product Name:||Above the Fog for Iray and 3Delight|
It’s so quiet here above the fog, maybe too quiet. What secret is obscured? Will this misty silence confirm a place of peace or will my imagination conjure some dark reality?
This prop for Iray and 3Delight has many material presets that control color, density, as well as the puff scale and contrast. It’s easy to change the mood, go from smooth, undulating, and heavy to light, airy and patchy. It’s versatile to fit your story, this prop can be tilted to create a wall of fog or flipped to create smoke collecting on the ceiling. Change the shape using the included D-Former to lift the fog into a swell, which can be scaled small to fit a cauldron or large to encompass a cemetery on a hill.
The 3Delight prop has many more presets than the Iray version and can be adjusted to create volumetric effects (God rays) with the flip of a switch. This will increase render times. Both versions are sensitive to light, as both catch and scatter light for more realism to real fog. For Ambient Occlusion in 3Delight, you will experience faster renders using Age Of Armour's Advanced Ambient Light, with it’s ability to exclude surfaces, rather than using UberEnvironment2. The Iray prop works best with ambient light, especially HDR based lights.
Review the promos for which render engine was used as they have different presets/effects. Also look for ideas on lighting and camera angles. Your camera needs to be outside the prop for the fog to render correctly.
