Quote from: Redwolf on March 04, 2011, 03:22:16 ami think i posted the tgcin here or was it the settings a few yrs ago under the name terrade (which i cant get back on here under that name for some reason), anyway I did a load of these but failed to get the light like you have here, I can post a tgd here if it helps.Excellent image tho
Quote from: Dune on March 04, 2011, 05:07:43 amI think your clouds are way too high. That increases rendertime of course, and the photo's of aurora's I saw didn't have this high 'stretching', and less sharp 'lines'. You might want to try less high clouds at lesser height... I'll check out your tgd later, of course.---Dune
Quote from: dandelO on March 04, 2011, 07:03:29 amNice render. Although, I'm sure you're, both of you, quite mad! ... I looked at the .tgd you posted and was very surprised to see the quality settings you have used, in both clouds and atmosphere. There are some 370 atmosphere samples (roughly), and with a cloud quality of '50', creating over 600 cloud samples, it's no surprise that this took so long to render!I've got to wonder, was it really necessary to use such extremely high settings to clean up the noise? Especially in the atmosphere, there are very little atmo-shadows involved in your scene. I can understand that the clouds, with all that stretching(500 Y), need to be set pretty high but Q=50?And, surely '-4.2' is easier to type than '355.873' for sun elevation. After all, it can only be set between -90 and 90 degrees. I've not tried to render any of it myself yet but I'm paring back the settings and I'll see if it can be tweaked any at my end later on.It is a lovely, clean scene, though! I wish I had you guys' patience!

Quote from: dandelO on March 04, 2011, 07:17:54 am* You'd probably be best to use the localize cloud feature too. Then, you could situate the clouds above your mountains/lake/city, whatever, and they won't reach to the horizon.
