How To Create Photo Realistic Cloud Effects?

Is there anyway that I can make a photo realistic cloud effects with real looking clouds that just move without buying AE plugins and/or using combustion?

Any way to make them in 3DSM6? Or even just AE?

If you have a wacom tablet I know of this tutorial site to paint realistic clouds.

Of course these are just basic clouds. You can get much more detailed given some imagination and alot of time.

if u have maya, you can use the fluid effects to make fantastic clouds :slight_smile:

edit// woops… just read that ur using max. nvm :slight_smile:

if you want ultra realistic clouds use a 3d proggy that has particles or HV’s.

try terragen or vue 4 also

if u feel lazy just download a picture from google :slight_smile:
