I thought this was nifty as well.

Still need to improve the overall look of the ring. It needs depth and color.

Worked out good. Like the results.

Lower the cloud density, removed the cloud fractal, added atmosphere to planet 2 and took a shot near the surface.

...And made yourself a lovely night-rainbow!

Nice results, Ogre. It's a good technique, eh?

Yup, works great. I played some more thinking the Y restrictions would be all that is needed and the ring would be limited by the top and bottom of the cloud layer but it seems to not work unless the Simple shader is involved. Great job.

I used it fine without the simple shape shader. I only ended up using it again to remove a portion of space around the planet.

The surface layer, while using 'Y for altitude' should restrict the thickness of the ring fine. The cloud top and bottom is measured from the surface normal of the ringed planet planet.

Was wondering how to add tilt to these here examples?
I have been using fake rocks as a ring controlled by simple shapes and got tilt within the rock object pannel. But clouds do not have a parameter for tilt. What node can I add that will allow me to gain that kind of control over the clod ring in space?

Here is a project file. Real busy at work so couldn't strip it down for you.

Yep, that does it!

THanks for sharing it, Ogre.

By the way, I saw in your file some real interesting names of ships. Did you ever post a finished image from this file with those other elements in it?

I saw some add color nodes, but you can stack the simple shapes if you untick the black... less nodes.

I posted the object some time ago at terragen.org. Haven't been there in some time so not sure if it is still available.  I also mode changes to the one I posted. PM me and I can send you that latest TGO file
