Ozone 6 – Reference Manual

Welcome to Ozone™ 6!
Ozone™ 6 is a plug-in for LightWave, Maya, 3ds Max, Cinema4D and SoftImage, designed to let you easily add convincing atmospheric effects to your scenes. Ozone 6 is an incredibly elaborate set of algorithms that model the behavior of our planet’s real atmosphere. These algorithms can be used to produce many kinds of atmospheric situations. When you use Ozone 6, the scenes you build become part of a real world. A world that extends far beyond your scene. A world with an atmosphere, with clouds, fog, haze and all… Real clouds, infinite ones, not just a backdrop picture of a sky. A world that you can move around in, and look at the sky from any direction. And best of all, a sky that you can entirely customize! Ozone 6 includes the new Spectral 3 Atmosphere hyper-realistic model that accurately simulates the behavior of real-world atmosphere and lighting according to weather conditions. The appearance of sky, sun and clouds (both standard and spectral), as well as the character of direct and ambient light are all affected by the delicate balance between the elements that constitute the atmosphere: air, dust and water particles. The Spectral 3 model introduces a new set of breakthrough algorithms that are capable of rendering extremely detailed volume clouds at an incredible pace. These new algorithms are capable of better simulating the intricate complexity of cloud geometry, as well as the indirect illumination that takes place inside the clouds. Spectral layers are created using any type of noise function, and provide a wide range of control over density, cover, illumination and even vertical profile. You can easily control the overall shape of the clouds, from feathery to clumpy, as well as their sharpness (how fuzzy or defined the cloud is). They look equally good from below or from above, and thus are perfectly suited for fly-through sequences, as well as ground fog or "mountains peaking through clouds" effects. With the right settings, you can produce natural phenomena like God-rays. You can create skies with as many overlapping spectral cloud layers as you like for complex and unbelievably realistic cloudscapes! Spectral 3 Atmospheres provide their own set of controls that let you adjust each element’s density and height, as well as additional parameters like aerial perspective (for realistic simulation of aerial shots) and rendering quality. Using the Spectral model ensures a complete coherence of all the elements of a scene. Ozone 6 ships with an extensive set of over 100 predefined atmospheres, including bright daytime, bad weather, sunrise, sunset, night time plus a variety of "less realistic" effects. Many Spectral atmospheres are also included. And you can easily create the desired atmosphere in seconds by combining any of the 100 different cloud shapes supplied! There is no limit to the variety of effects that can be achieved. You can save your settings and add them to the collection of presets for use in other projects.

Make skies spring to life! Simply set the direction. Super-fast rendering technology: despite the staggering complexity of the atmospheric model.

In the other case. you need to: • • Check the box near the application version (you will be asked to browse to the location where the application is installed) Or select the application version. the installer has no way to tell which version of the application you’re selecting in the browser. During the installation of the 32bit plug-ins. then the corresponding item in the list will be already selected and the path to the application will already be filled. click on the Browse button. Please select the versions for which you want to install the Ozone integration plug-in. If the installer detects the application on your computer. you will be asked which versions of the integration plug-in you want to install. Mental Ray Configuration Files When you have finished selecting which versions you want to install. please select the corresponding 32bit applications and 32bit paths. If you haven’t selected any Mental Ray-compatible application. the installer will only allow the installation into a folder if it can detect the application there. But. then this step is skipped by the installer. you can safely ignore this step. and then check the box. the following erroneous cases won’t be detected: • • Browse to the 64bit path of an application when you’re currently installing the 32bit version of Ozone 6. For instance. and do the same while installing the 64bit plugins. you will have to install both versions of Ozone 6. Otherwise. For each application version. To avoid any mistake during installation. 7 . you can correct the default path of the Mental Ray configuration file. All supported applications for the current architecture (32bit or 64bit) will be listed.

Gamma: Use the slider to set up the gamma correction by referring to the preview on the right. the gamma correction is only applied to the render using the next options. This means that if your native scene contains a sun object. The Gamma correction features let you specify the input and output gamma that Ozone uses internally. then its position and orientation will be read and set to the Ozone sun.

The default value of 8000 should work well in daylight scenes. 12 . it won’t be visible in reflections/refractions). as more and more crystals have been switched by the incoming light. Render atmosphere: uncheck this option if you don’t want atmospheric effects to be rendered in your image. This option will scale all values returned by Ozone during render by the intensity scale you specify. This non-linear reaction means that bright areas in the image will appear less bright. displayed by selecting the Edit button. Mental Ray & V-Ray (only applications supported for V-Ray and Mental Ray) Use Physical Lighting: check this option if you’re using a Mental Ray or V-Ray photographic exposure (this is generally the case of you’re using Mental Ray Sun & Sky). It option is usually used to check the render of the native objects alone. the Render Ozone scene option and its sub-options are all checked. a crystal will not be switched any further by more light hitting it (it can’t be more black than black). then Ozone won’t be used at all during the render of the scene. Apply Lens Flare on Ozone lights: This applies a default lens flare to the sun.e. When light reaches the surface of the film. As a result. you should use the alpha channel instead of this option. But. making the point appear darker and darker. it hits these crystals and triggers a chemical reaction that switches the state of the crystal (it becomes dark . It is the proportion of switched crystals that increases as light keeps on flooding in. Render sky: uncheck this option if you don’t want to render the Ozone sky. Ozone render options: This allows you to set the render options using the Ozone settings.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Render Options By default. Post Processing Apply Natural Film Response filter: Photochemical films are made of tiny crystals of silver salt that react to light. resulting in a broader dynamic of light being visible in the final image. If you want to remove the background. meaning everything is rendered. it will take more and more light to get them that much darker. If you uncheck the Render Ozone scene frame checkbox.this process is then inverted to result in a bright point). but you may have to change it depending on your scene setup. Typical values range from 5000 to 30000. Once switched. while points on the film will initially get dark very quickly. the chances of hitting an "unswitched" crystal go down. resulting in a non-linear reaction to light. Select this option to enable the non-linear reaction to light typical of photochemical films. and dark areas less dark. Please note that it won’t be rendered for primary rays but also for secondary rays (i. Render Quality Automatic (based on native renderer sampling quality): This defers the render options to the native renderer and doesn’t use Ozone settings.

A cloud layer is symbolized by a box of the same height in the host application. it is automatically added to the current atmosphere and can be seen in the Cloud Tab in the Atmosphere Editor which also opens with this option. at the bottom of the Cloud tab. After enabling a zone. only the horizontal part of the transformation has an effect. It may be worth isolating the interesting part of a cloud layer with a limiting zone. If it happens. Use of these zones can greatly speed up rendering of cloud layers outside the zone since clipping can be performed at render time. however. spectral cloud layers can now be restricted to a user-defined circular zone. you can edit the Falloff parameter. This cylinder can be transformed in all directions in the host.e. When you pick one of the cloud types.

To change the color map.

Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Sun color map. This is done using the Ambient light slider in the Global lighting adjustment group (see below). There is a slight subtlety in the way the standard Ozone lighting model defines ambient light: you can define how much of the ambient light is actually coming from the sky (horizontal surfaces will get more of this ambient light than vertical faces) as opposed to ambient light coming from all directions. although it will still be emitting light. In the Standard model. which is the most Atmosphere Editor – Light Tab basic model available in Ozone 6. the more the light is masked by clouds high in the sky. parts of the scene that look towards blue sky will take on blue shades of light. activates the masking of sunlight by low altitude clouds. Light Tab This tab is identical in all atmosphere models. whereas other parts looking towards red sky will take on red shades of light. The larger the value. high altitude clouds never get to mask sunlight. the light coming from the environment is approximated to a constant term known as Ambient light. The global ambience model will add an interesting touch to your renders while requiring very little rendering overhead. Size of the corona: in some atmospheres. In this case the sun color map is ignored. If the sun size is zero. In the Standard and Volumetric atmosphere models. Sunlight masked by clouds. There are 2 lighting models available in Ozone 6: • • Standard Global ambience Each point of the scene receives light from the sun. 19 . Because clouds diffuse light. The different lighting models differentiate themselves by the way they estimate the amount of light coming from the environment. this setting is available to control the visible size of the solar disk that is added to the atmospheric glow. This effect is automatically handled in the more advanced Spectral model. no sun will be visible in the sky. The Global ambience model offers a slightly more elaborate estimation of the light coming from the environment: this model takes into account the color of the sky in all directions. the sky as well as from the environment (sky and surrounding objects). As a result. The color gradation ranges radially.

Ambient light lets you further customize ambient light by deciding how it is shared between light coming from the sky. you can reduce the saturation of the overall color. Increasing this setting adds more ambient light to your scene. if you have for instance a house that is lit up from the inside. This control does offer an added level of flexibility. Alternatively. and light coming from everywhere (uniform light).e. If lights in your scene (other than sunlight) are used for the atmosphere. It is a natural phenomenon that sunlight gets warmer (i. if you feel that the parts of your scene in the shadows are taking a color tone that is too pronounced. You may adjust the overall luminosity of your scene using the Light intensity control. the color correction that you indicated by modifying the previous color will still be applied to the new color. so you should select Only to sunlight. you will not want that light to be affected by changes in the exposure outside of the house. you should apply the settings to all lights. If you check the …to sky and clouds option.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Other controls include: Sky dome lighting gain: this parameter controls the overall intensity of the light received from the sky. you get the choice to Apply these settings either to all the lights. Light Color You can give a different color temperature to the sun light and to the sky / ambient light. whereas scenes with a bright sky will have lots of light coming from the sky. though. Light color and exposure affect the color and intensity of light sources. the color displayed in the control will change. if you modify the settings of the sky. and lets you adjust it in order to fine tune the ambient lighting of your scene (doubleclick on the color control to edit the color). Global Lighting Adjustment The controls in this group let you adjust the distribution of light throughout your scene. Because this color control represents the overall color of the sky. For instance. Lastly. Scenes with fog will usually require larger amounts of uniform ambient light. the lighting adjustments will also affect the color of the sky and clouds. whereas sunset scenes should have little. Light color acts as a filter for the color of the lights in your scene. with a sun color that is green will make the light coming from the sun a darker shade of green. takes yellow to orange shades) as the sun gets 20 . Having an orange light color. Overall skylight color: this color control represents the overall color of the light coming from the sky dome. Double click on the colors to adjust them. It is somewhat similar to dragging the light balance control towards ambient and increasing the exposure of the scene globally. or only to sunlight. However. Scenes with a bright sky will have lots of ambient light. Light balance lets you adjust the relative quantities of light coming from the sun and from the environment (ambient light).

Such warm lights can yield pleasing results when exposed objects take on warm shades. Since ambient light is diffused by the clouds. while colors on the right side of the map show Atmosphere Editor – Sky Tab 21 . the color is R=218. G=171. because if you do. Ambient light color adjusts the color of ambient lighting. It isn’t available in the Volumetric or Spectral models. To edit the color map. light is affected by the atmosphere as it travels through it anyway… Light decay color: this is the color that is used to make the color of light turn to red. The most important control is the Sky color map. it should not be disabled with the Volumetric atmosphere model. B=71. Apply settings… You have the option of applying these settings • • • To all lights Only to sunlight To sky and clouds. The resulting gradation occurs inside a strip that is pulled down by the sun.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual closer to the horizon. you’ll probably get unexpected (and unrealistic) results. Although this effect is available in both models. Preferably. This means that colors on the left side of the map will show close to the sun. because with this model. which will open up the Color Map Editor. you shouldn’t modify these values. it usually has a cooler tone (shades of blue) than that of direct sunlight. The color of the sky is generated by vertically mapping these colors. whether light comes from the sky or from the environment. By default. Control-click on it. This can work well for alien planets! Sky Tab This tab deals with the colors of the sky in the standard atmosphere model. Entering a different color will completely affect the way light is colored by the atmosphere. This is where sky colors are defined. Auto Decay Sunlight Color The options in this group control the way the color of light reddens as it gets closer to the horizon.

Thickness controls the maximum density of fog achieved at the horizon. You can adjust this effect using two controls: Thickness and Max altitude. At the top-left of the tab. and Max altitude controls how high up in the sky the fog is seen. and it also means that as you get higher in the sky. The higher the value. the cloud browser appears to let you select an existing layer. Cloud layers are sorted by altitude. and use the controls on this tab to change the cloud layer settings. It is the color of the fog (and haze). Sky color map distortion by sun controls the effect the sun has on the Sky color map. Clouds are generated inside flat layers. The details of each layer are displayed one at a time. the more distorted the gradation becomes. As you get closer to the sun. press Delete. The two Color map position on sky dome controls let you adjust the altitudes at which the gradation starts and ends in the sky. Click again to show the layer back. Atmosphere Editor – Clouds Tab indicating that the layer the icon changes to no longer appears in the sky. You can create as many layers of clouds as you want. colors further to the right of the gradation appear. click the Add button. you will notice a icon. so probably some experimentation will be required here. To add a new cloud layer. eventually ending up in circles around the sun. realistically positioned and mapped at different altitudes around the earth. Near the horizon. you will find a list of all the cloud layers in the atmosphere. Click on this icon to hide the layer. 22 . colors to the left of the map get displayed. To delete the cloud layer that is currently selected. creeping up into the sky with distance. Bear in mind that these altitudes will be modified by the presence of the sun. the sky is often a different color. select it by clicking on the layer name. Clouds Tab This tab is available for all three atmosphere models. To modify one of the cloud layers. Alongside each layer name.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual towards the zenith.

This control lets you adjust the balance between ambient and sunlight in each layer independently. you or edit the current one using the controls on can load a new one using the Load material icon the right. you will never get to see the cloud layers above or the sky through it. the less sky shows. If you are using Standard or Volumetric clouds. The two most important features about a cloud layer are the Altitude of the layer and the material of the clouds. The Cover setting controls the overall amount of clouds visible in this layer. The current material used for the cloud layer is displayed in the preview window. the following controls are available: In the Spectral atmosphere model. If the Spectral cloud model is selected instead. the clouds tend to fade out. dissolving in a general haze. the following settings apply: Close to the horizon. icon The preview of the cloud material is refreshed each time you modify an aspect of the cloud layer. and use the Contrast setting to adjust the contrast between dark and bright areas in the clouds. If the cloud material is opaque. The slider covers "usual" altitudes. These 3 controls are only available in the standard and volumetric atmosphere models. This effect can be captured using the Thickness near horizon control which handles the speed at which clouds disappear as they get close to the horizon. The Light balance control is only available if the Apply to sky and clouds option is not selected in the Light tab. A small preview window shows the typical effect that the setting has on the cloud layer. Density: this setting is available only when using the spectral atmosphere model. and the Density setting controls the overall density of the clouds that are visible. So it should be transparent in places. the Thickness setting lets you control how thick the cloud layer is in terms of altitude (the total height of the layer). Altitude is pretty straightforward. 23 . but any value can be entered. Cover indicates the amount of clouds in the sky – the more coverage. You can change the scale of the clouds by using the Scale control. the settings for that layer of clouds will be modified to reflect the settings of the new cloud material. You can also click the Randomize to change the cloud distribution to vary the cloud effect. the Clouds tab offers a set of controls that you can use to customize the looks of the layer. An important aspect of cloud materials is transparency. To modify it. Adjust the Global exposure of the clouds using the slider to darken or brighten the clouds. When you load a new cloud material.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual For each cloud layer in the atmosphere. It controls how far light penetrates inside the cloud and how the light is scattered inside the cloud.

It should be set to 100% in order to achieve Godrays that are as visible as possible. Falloff: make the border of the zone sharp by setting it to 0. you can make your cloud layer drift in the wind. the following controls are also available: Sharpness: this controls how sharp the edges of the cloud appear. Fog and Haze tab). High values will create clouds with a lot of inner density variations. and also the density of the Godrays (if this option has been enabled in the Sky. It controls how dark are the shadows cast by the clouds. clouds close to the sun are usually more illuminated than clouds on the opposite side relative to the sun. You can change this illumination using the Global illumination and Near the sun illumination parameters. If the cloud is very opaque. The Rate of change control is used to set the evolution rate of the cloud layer (whether the shape of the clouds evolves slowly or rapidly over time). Low values will create smoother cloud shapes. The higher the value. It controls how far you can see objects through the cloud.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Opacity: this setting is also available only when using the spectral atmosphere model. If the Spectral II model is selected. In the sky. If the cloud layer has been made to not cast shadows. Simple Cloud Animation The Cloud animation group provides straightforward controls for basic cloud animation (movement and evolution): using Direction and Velocity. Ambient lighting: this setting is only available in the spectral atmosphere model. the brighter the cloud will appear. while low values will keep the clouds smooth and compact. this setting is disabled. Shadow density: this setting is only available in the spectral atmosphere model. 24 . Altitude variations: this setting controls the amount of variation in the altitude of the cloud layer. Limit cloud to zone: check this box to enable a cloud zone. Feathers: this controls how "feathered" the clouds look. Low values will create smoother cloud shapes. This setting affects the cloud layer on a large scale only. High values will create clouds with lots of filaments. Altitude variations are particularly noticeable at the top of the layer. It controls the amount of ambient light inside the cloud. Maximum illumination is achieved for clouds that are close to the sun. High values will create clouds with sharp edges. setting it higher starts to smooth out the border. Detail amount: this controls the amplitude of the cloud detail. objects inside the cloud will rapidly become invisible. This influences both the density of the shadows cast by the clouds onto the scene..

It is by adjusting the density of the fog and haze that you will adjust the color of the sky. Fog and Haze Tab The Fog & Haze tab is only available in the standard and volumetric atmosphere models. Spectral cloud materials are edited mostly in the same way as standard volumetric materials. to achieve particular photographic atmospheres). it is replaced by the Sky. Whatever the weather conditions (unless you are out in space).g. What changes is the distance at which they become significant. just like in reality. Although you may think fog and haze are used only on special occasions (e. this is not the case. Spectral Clouds Spectral clouds are a special kind of cloud layers that have a thickness. This is why nearly all the predefined atmospheres have some amount of fog and haze. Because fog and haze are responsible for the color of the atmosphere.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Volumetric Clouds Volumetric clouds are a special kind of volumetric material that is optimized to accurately simulate real clouds. because they give an Atmosphere Editor – Fog and Haze Tab idea of distance. they are an essential component of the volumetric atmosphere model. except for a couple of additional settings: Height: this setting controls the overall height of the cloud layer. a thick mass of air and humidity that derives its look from the way the light travels inside the material and interacts with the cloud particles. What this means is that the cloud layer is. both onto the ground and in the atmosphere (to create the famous Godrays effect). Fog and haze are what give its color to the sky. Shadow density: this setting controls the density of the shadows cast by this layer of clouds. Higher values means the cloud will be higher. and consequently darker. They are edited mostly in the same way as standard volumetric materials. except that some settings are locked.. 25 . This tab looks somewhat different depending on the selected model of atmosphere. Fog & Haze tab (see below). In the spectral model. Fog and haze are important for fine tuning the atmosphere. you will find that fog and haze are always present.

altitude dependent fog that has a density that varies exponentially with altitude. Indicate the Altitude at which altitude dependent fog achieves maximum density. In practice. etc. This controls the altitude of the "layer" of fog created by altitude dependent fog. • Haze Haze is particularly strong on hot days. if you want fog to accumulate at high altitudes (for instance to render mountains lost in high altitude fog or a smoke filled cave. This is known as Rayleigh scattering.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Fog Fog is a generic term that covers all types of particles that you find in the atmosphere and that are large enough to reflect light (i. in particular. letting you select the new color. In some atmospheres. the more rapidly the fog density decreases with altitude. the curve on the right displays a Preview of fog thickness relative to altitude. This is. regardless of altitude. select the Fog gathers at low altitudes box. the following options may also be available: Standard Atmosphere Model Only The following controls are available only in the standard atmosphere model: • If you want the fog to be accumulated in the lower part of the scene (which is usually the case). Density is the distance at which objects totally disappear inside the fog. the more the color of the objects will blend into the color of the fog. The further the objects. alternately. In the volumetric atmosphere model. the extra fog controls are enabled only if the fall off rate is non zero.e. only the second type of fog is available. In the standard model. To help you in understanding how the thickness of the fog works. but also dust. 26 . the case of droplets of humidity. Objects tend to gradually disappear into fog as they move away from the camera. it is somewhat tricky to use. crystals of ice. and is the reason why the sky is blue and the sun light turns red near the horizon. larger than the average wavelength of light). Falloff controls the way that fog gets gradually thinner with altitude. Select the fog Color by double-clicking on the color box. select the other box. The color editor pops-up. It is caused by light being scattered in all directions when it collides with the very small particles in the atmosphere (molecules of Oxygen and Nitrogen mainly). There are two types of fog in the standard atmosphere model: • • uniform fog that has constant thickness whatever the altitude. for that matter). The greater the value.

it doesn’t take a volcanic eruption to make the sky turn green! Unlike fog. if it is the standard one. The higher the setting. depending on the various densities of particles in the air (e. because they can dramatically increase render times. Volumetric sunlight should be used with great care. without necessarily having any noticeable effect. the fall off setting isn’t available. 27 . Objects in the scene will start to cast shadows in the atmosphere. Haze controls are pretty straightforward: if the selected model for the atmosphere is the volumetric one. because haze density is considered constant with altitude.g. the following setting is also available: Volumetric Atmosphere Model Only Glow intensity: this setting controls the intensity of the bright area around the sun. the sky can sometimes be green after volcanic eruptions. the brighter the atmosphere near the sun. because of the large quantities of very thin particles of smoke that get thrown into the air by the eruption). Luckily. in Ozone 6. the controls for haze work exactly like those for fog. Quality boost: This setting is available only in the volumetric and spectral atmosphere models. Volumetric sunlight: check this option to make the sun volumetric. It controls the number of samples that are taken throughout the atmosphere in order to compute the interactions of light with the air. dust…).Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Other colors can be observed. the effects of haze saturate with distance. Increase the Quality boost setting if you can see noise in the atmosphere (beware: longer render times will result). In some atmospheres. which is caused by the light being reflected on the larger particles in the atmosphere (droplets of water. The result can be particularly impressive when the sun is low on the horizon.

but you can imagine alien planets where the gasses in the atmosphere result in a different color for the atmosphere. this is usually a lot less than half the maximum altitude of the component. this tab replaces the Fog and Haze tab described above. The first set of controls in this group are related to the sky. the density of the atmosphere is half of that at ground level). The other settings in this group are relative to the color decay caused by atmospheric gasses. this controls the rate at which the decay disappears with increasing altitudes. and the reddening of the sun near the horizon. Because density is exponential with altitude. this color is blue. Decay mean altitude: like for sky.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Sky. This controls the way the color of light turns red as the sun gets closer to the horizon: Decay amount: this is the amount of reddening that occurs as the sun gets closer to the horizon. Sky color: this lets you change the color shift caused by the gasses in the atmosphere. This setting lets you change the color hue taken by the sun 28 . On earth. Sky The controls in this group let you adjust the density of the gasses that constitute the atmosphere (namely nitrogen and oxygen). the atmospheric gasses result in a blue color in the sky. Sky mean altitude: this indicates the rate at which the density of the atmospheric gasses drops with altitude. In some atmospheres. Mean altitude: this is the altitude where density reaches half the density at ground level.5 miles (at an altitude of 5. but it’s mean altitude is only 5. the gasses in the atmospheres of other planets could result in a different base sky color and light decay. we know that the Earth’s atmosphere reaches up to approximately 60 miles high. On earth. For instance. the more quickly the density drops (the atmosphere density is exponential with altitude). and the way the blue color appears: Atmosphere Editor – Sky.5 miles. Decay color: on earth. and a reddening of light near the horizon. these gasses are responsible for the blue color of the sky. However. Fog and Haze Tab Sky ground density: this setting controls the density of the atmospheric gasses at ground altitude. Fog and Haze Tab This tab is specific to the Spectral atmosphere model. The lower the mean altitude.

It influences the overall shape of the glow effect around the sun. you shouldn’t need to modify the sky and decay colors. Glow intensity: glow is caused by water particles being illuminated from behind. They result in a bright glow around the sun. this color is a dark shade of gray. Clouds anisotropy: this provides additional control over the way light is scattered inside clouds. Small particles are responsible for the haze while humidity is responsible for fog. 29 . Haze color: controls the color that is added to the atmosphere as a result of the small particles. Fog ground density: this indicates the density of water particles at ground altitude. This setting lets you control the amount of glow in the atmosphere around the sun. Scattering anisotropy: this controls how "directional" the glow effect is. the atmosphere becomes gradually opaque. Haze is typically responsible for the gray color that appears near the horizon when the sun is high up in the sky. and how bright the fog is depending on the direction you look at. These water particles create a strong glow effect when illuminated from behind. When there is a lot of humidity in the atmosphere. Haze mean altitude: controls the rate at which the density of small particles in the atmosphere drops with altitude. Usually. The settings for Fog and Haze work like Sky and Decay above: Haze ground density: this indicates the density of particles of dust and pollution at ground altitude. this color is gray. Fog mean altitude: controls the rate at which the density of water particles in the atmosphere drops with altitude. This can make dramatic changes in sunset clouds nearest the sun. Usually.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual as it gets lower on the horizon. Fog color: controls the color that is added to the atmosphere as a result of the water particles. and humidity. for example. For earthen atmospheres. Fog and Haze The settings in this group control the other components of the atmosphere: small particles. such as dust.

Increase the Quality boost setting if you can see noise in the atmosphere (beware: longer render times will result). Volumetric sunlight should be used with great care. you should reset this value to 1.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Global Settings Aerial perspective: this setting controls the overall "thickness" of the atmosphere. The drop-list below Godrays has to do with shadows on clouds: No shadows on clouds: this option will not produce shadows on clouds from other clouds or any object above the cloud layer. A value of 1 corresponds to the typical Earth atmosphere. This option is only available in the Spectral atmosphere model. it takes very specific conditions to see Godrays shining through the clouds). If you increase this value. will be like increasing the scale of your scene. Note that you should not use the Spectral atmosphere model underwater. Quality boost: This setting is available only in the volumetric and spectral atmosphere models. as it will create a conflict between air particle densities and the water. 30 . the effect. without necessarily having any noticeable effect. Projected shadows on clouds: this selection will show shadows on clouds from other clouds or even from a plane flying above the cloud layer. so that the effects of the atmosphere can be seen without having to use "real-world" size environments. If you are looking for physical accuracy. Godrays: when this option is checked. because they can dramatically increase render times. which is the aerial perspective of the Earth’s atmosphere. Rendering Godrays can dramatically increase the render times. The result can be particularly impressive when the sun is low on the horizon. Volumetric sunlight: this option casts full volumetric and projected shows onto clouds and through the atmosphere. In the preset atmospheres. without necessarily having any noticeable effect (just like in the real world. resulting in rays of light showing through the clouds. leading to highly unrealistic results. It controls the number of samples that are taken throughout the atmosphere in order to compute the interactions of light with the air. the clouds will cast shadows in the atmosphere. this value is usually set to 10. You should also construct your environments at Earth scale (hundreds of miles). in terms of atmosphere.

the following controls become active: Number of stars: increase the value to add more stars in the sky. the Effects tab lets you define the picture to be used in the background.Effects Tab want to increase the brightness of the stars. If it is blue. you must understand that rainbows only appear when the sun is shining from behind the camera. close to the horizon. This is because rainbows are created by the light from the sun being diffracted inside drops of water (rain) and reflected back towards the source. because stars are barely visible in the daytime.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual Effects Tab The last tab in the Atmosphere Editor is identical in all atmosphere models. It lets you add cool atmospheric effects such as stars. These controls are only available in the standard and volumetric atmosphere models. However. In the case of the Environment mapped model. If this is not the case. A value of 100%means that the stars may be completely turned off" during the animation process. 31 . Twinkle: this control is used to adjust the amount of twinkling of the stars in an animation. make sure the sun is placed behind the camera. Brightness: increase the value to make the stars brighter. Rainbow Selecting this option will automatically add a rainbow effect to your scene. Colored stars: checking this option makes the stars appear with random colors. So if you don’t see the rainbow. rainbows or ice rings to your renders. A value of zero means that the stars don’t twinkle at all. you will probably Atmosphere Editor . If the sky is dark.

Realistic colors: select this option if you want the rainbow to display a realistic distribution of colors. The lower the setting. the amount of angular spread between the two extreme colors. much dimmer ring that appears at an angle of 46° around the direction of the sun. The main control in this group lets you define the image to be used as an environment map. the rainbow will vanish near the top. rather than the regular. at a specific angle around the direction of the light.e. larger and dimmer than the main bow. Size: this setting controls the thickness of the ring (i. Sundogs: check this option to show the sundogs on either side of the sun. the shorter the rainbow. ice rings are only visible in the atmosphere when looking straight at the sun. in place of the sky. 32 . The sun pillar is a vertical flare of light that appears to extend the central sun flare to the edges of the ice ring. is directly linked to the angle between the sides of the ice crystals. the amount of angular spread of light). When you turn on the ice ring option (this option is only available in the standard and volumetric atmosphere models). Parhelic arc: check this option to show a parhelic arc around the ice ring.e. inverted bow. the following controls become active: Intensity: this setting controls the overall intensity of the ring effect. The sundogs are a horizontal flare of light that appear on either side of the sun.Ozone 6 – Reference Manual When you turn on the rainbow feature. If the value is high. These ice crystals concentrate light into a ring around the sun. in between the sun and the ice ring. Falloff: this setting controls the way the intensity of the rainbow reduces with altitude. Environment Map This group of controls is only available when the Environment mapping model is selected. This is a secondary. Ice rings are caused by tiny crystals of ice in suspension in the air. and thus the size of the ring. the less noticeable the ice ring will be.
