Cutting-Edge Atmospheric Technology

CloudFactory Ozone 2017 features an elaborate atmosphere engine that does much more than add a backdrop picture of a sky. It provides an accurately simulated environment that affects all the elements of the scene, and behaves according to nature's rules.

The appearance of an object in a scene is directly affected by the position of the sun, the cloud cover, the amount of dust in the air, or the humidity level.

Because projects often require different approaches to the simulation and rendering of atmospheres, CloudFactory Ozone 2017 offers no less than five different atmospheric models, ranging from simple background skies to photo-based environments and physically accurate atmospheres.

Within this wide choice you will find the solution that best fits your project's needs.

Photometric Sunlight Model

The photometric sunlight model uses a real-world, physical simulation of sun and atmospheric lighting intensities. This scientifically accurate model offers an alternative to the more artistic approach of the existing Spectral model.

As a result, your renders will look more photo-real in a subtle way, and HDR renders will preserve all the range of the natural spectrum.

You can easily switch between the photometric model and the standard spectral model; CloudFactory Ozone 2017 will make all the required changes automatically.

The CloudFactory Ozone 2017 atmosphere engine will automatically adapt to the host application's photometric model to provide seamlessly integrated lighting.

Spectral 3 Atmosphere Model: Hyper-Realism

The 3rd generation of Spectral Atmospheres is a physically-based, hyper-realistic model that accurately simulates the behavior of real-world atmosphere and lighting according to weather conditions.

The appearance of the sky, sun and clouds as well as the character of direct and ambient light, are all affected by the delicate balance between the elements that constitute the atmosphere: air, dust and water particles.

The Spectral model provides its own set of controls that let you adjust each element's density and height, as well as additional parameters like aerial perspective, sun corona, scattering anisotropy and rendering quality.

Using the Spectral model ensures a complete coherence of all the elements of a scene.

Standard Atmosphere Model

The standard model lets you control sky appearance through the use of color gradients.

You can create an unlimited number of fully editable cloud layers, control fog and haze densities, or add special effects like twinkling stars, rainbows and ice rings.

All atmospheric elements can be fully animated. The standard model's main advantages are ease of use and fast rendering.

Environment Mapping Model

Especially suited for architectural visualization, this model lets you easily set up an environment based on panoramic photographs. By using CloudFactory Ozone 2017's image based lighting, HDRI support and global reflection mapping you can create a seamless integration between your scene and the background plates.

Volumetric Atmosphere Model

The volumetric model offers a compromise between the standard and spectral models, giving you a higher level of realism, yet rendering faster than spectral atmospheres.

Unlike the standard atmosphere, the appearance of the sky and sun is not defined by color gradients. It's directly affected by haze fog settings and by the sun's position, much like in a real atmosphere.

The volumetric model is especially suited for animations: simply moving the sun around produces beautiful color and lighting shifts.
