I've just watched demo videos of Terragen and read some docs, but still have some questions. I haven't try to work with Terragen, but currently looking for a way to model good looking environments to use it in a technical simulation in a 3d engine and in order for it to look good it has to have a great looking sky. So here is two questions:

1) Is it possible to render animation of the clouds by a spherical camera, so that later I can assign this animation as a movie texture and assign it to a hemisphere(skydome) and have nice looking clouds.
2) Is it possible to render different channels separatly? For instanse, I just want clouds and their alpha channel. Is it possible?

Thanks in advance for answers and sorry for noob questions.=)
