High Quality 2D Cloud Cards with Volumetric Self-Shadows
TRAILER / UPDATE 1 / DEMO / QUIXEL: USERCASE (@8:45)
Ever wanted to have a veeery specific looking sky? Needed a cloud shifted juuust a little to the right? Wanted to change the time of day only to redo the whole sky?
SkyCard is a collection of high quality 2D impostor clouds for UE4. What makes these more special is the fact that while 2D they still cast high quality volumetric self-shadows creating the illusion of a volume object at a fraction of the cost! No normal maps used!
The clouds will correctly behave with changing sunligh light direction, can have parameters like density, shadow blur and light/ground scattering adjusted making them fit for any environment or blended over any HDR Background!
With the resources included you can make any sky - from storms to wisps of cirrus clouds, from realistic to stylized!
UPDATE 1: *Requires UE4.24+ with a Sky Atmosphere Actor*
