Atmospheres That Come Alive

The CloudFactory Ozone 2017 plug-in lets you create and render hyper-realistic skies and atmospheres in 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage, Lightwave and Cinema4D.


Highlights


CloudFactory Ozone 2017 implements the cutting-edge technologies developped by e-on software for the simulation and rendering of atmospheric effects. Its atmospheres provide an accurately simulated environment that affects all elements of your scenes and behaves according to nature's rules.

CloudFactory Ozone 2017 is built on the same algorithms and integration technology as Vue xStream, but is limited to atmospheres and skies.

With five atmospheric models – photometric, spectral, volumetric, standard and environment mapping, over 100 preset atmospheres and 100 preset cloud shapes, CloudFactory Ozone 2017 is the most complete, realistic and productive solution for creating skies and atmospheres that come alive.

Your atmospheres can be as realistic as what you see out your window or they can be as imaginative as the green and purple sunsets of uncharted planets.

Get Going Fast!

With its easy to use interface and wide range of features, CloudFactory Ozone 2017 is the essential tool for animators and still creators seeking professional atmospheric results.

Bright sunshine, glorious sunsets, bad weather, moonlit nights – CloudFactory Ozone 2017 handles them all. With over 100 predefined atmospheres and an intuitive interface, you can achieve exactly what you had in mind in minutes!

Customize every aspect of the atmosphere. Raise and lower the sun or change the direction or color of the sunlight. Add storm clouds to create an ominous mood. Create a thick, moisture-laden atmosphere where objects get lost in the mist. Add layer upon layer of clouds, adjusting their complexity, density, altitude and shape. Add a rainbow for a special effect, or stars and ice rings. You are in total control.

Interface

The CloudFactory Ozone 2017 interface is straight-forward and productive. It consists of 4 or 5 tabs, depending on the atmosphere model:

  • Sun to adjust the position and size of the sun.
  • Light to select and modify the lighting model you wish to use – standard or global ambience.
  • Clouds to create layers of clouds and adjust their settings.
  • Fog and Haze to adjust the density, distribution and color of the fog and haze.
  • Sky, Fog and Haze (for Spectral Atmospheres) to set up parameters for fog and haze and to add such effects as volumetric sunlight and godrays.
  • Effects to add special effects such as rainbows, stars, ice rings, etc...

Animate It All!

CloudFactory Ozone 2017 lets you animate everything from clouds and sun to fog and haze.

Take precise control of all animation properties by editing keyframes directly and then personalize in your timeline.

Skies spring to life as your clouds swirl!

Ozone's Atmospheres are Compatible with VUE

CloudFactory Ozone 2017 is totally compatible with the VUE* atmospheric system (e-on software's award winning 3D scenery generator).

Any atmosphere created in VUE* can be used in CloudFactory Ozone 2017 for even more flexibility.

* Up to VUE 2016

Even More Power with VUE xStream!

VUE is the world's leading 3D Digital Nature solution. VUE creates the entire environment for your scenes, and not just atmospheres.

VUE xStream integrates to 3ds Max, Maya, LightWave, Cinema 4D and Softimage to offer a complete toolset for creating and rendering exceptionally rich and realistic natural environments.

Ozone 2015

Physically Accurate Sunlight Model

  • The new photometric sunlight model uses a real-world, physical simulation of sun and atmospheric lighting intensities. This new, scientifically accurate model offers an alternative to the more artistic approach of the existing Spectral model.  As a result, your renders will look more photo-real in a subtle way, and HDR renders will preserve all the range of the natural spectrum.
  • You can easily switch between the new photometric model and the standard spectral model; Ozone 2015 will make all the required changes automatically.
  • The Ozone 2015 render engine will automatically adapt to the host application's photometric model to provide seamlessly integrated lighting.

Deeper Interoperability

  • Ozone 2015 now supports Autodesk Media & Entertainment products up to release 2015 (3ds Max 2015, Maya 2015 and Softimage 2015), and also adds support for V-Ray 3 for 3ds Max (support V-Ray 3 for Maya is under development)*.
  • Ozone 2015 also now also supports Maxon Cinema 4D up to R16 and Newtek LightWave up to version 11.6.

* Support for the upcoming version of LightWave is also under development, and will be added to Ozone 2015 as soon as such new version is released.
