In a recent Facebook posting, you (podium) presented a 360 panorama of a courtyard by Nat Ellis. How did he manage to get the clouds so white and vibrant? I read a post on this forum where someone mentioned that you need to boost the exposure and intensity sliders to the maximum setting. ok did that. Sun angle is nice and high. My clouds are still a little grey or almost white. Any additional ideas? [smile]

I'm going to switch to a different dome.

You need to scale up the dome it that case. The bigger the Dome the Brighter!

Thanks. I picked a different dome too just to try it out. Had to scale it up as you said so it would cover my model. Most of my work is larger scale site plans so I've got a lot of land to put a dome over. Processing now. Lots of 3D plant material so AA is running around the clock.

Please post your results. I am needing to do some exterior panoramas and have never done one so your experience would be very helpful.

Thanks
Paul

With 3d plants, select the leaf material and set per-material AA to low. That will massively help render speed [smile]

Same thing for grass and other 'noisy' textures.

pmolson, will do. working on some ground plane texture mapping now since you cannot do too much pp on a panorama formatted image. not unless you're a calculus geometry wizard which I'm not so experimental texture mapping it is then.

big stick, i've found the results to be highly noticeable when using 3D plant material. for example, with AA set to low, oak leaves in the middle of the image (not fore or backround) render completely blurry. With AA set to default everything in the image is crisp and clear so waiting for edge resampling is a price I'm willing to pay, however long it takes.

Hmm - interesting!

I need to revise antialiasing settings for Podium 3 so that's something to test [smile]

Don't ask me when - if I tell you, I'll have to kill you...

Here is an image of the panorama that is now generating. Vantage point is from standing on the walkway just in front of the steps on the left. This image was rendered as I was working on the last bit of sidewalk scoring in the model and accompanying texture map. I'll post the final. Be back in a few days... literally.
