Pure-Sky (Eevee & Cycle)

by 3DVision in Materials, Shaders, Textures


Imagine a beautiful starry sky on a full moon night, a sunset at the seaside or a beautiful sunny day, with Pure-Sky Pro you can now realize these different scenes and much more.

Pure-Sky is the first and only procedural sky for Blender that: 

Includes shadow catcher. 
Includes a procedural ocean shader.
Allows you to display a stormy sky in one click.  
Directly includes real-time lens Flares and lens dirt.
Offers the possibility to fly into space with a 360° view.
Includes volumetric clouds generated directly in the world. 

Important!!

  • Please, read the data sheet carefully before making a purchase.
  • The stability of this product is guaranteed only for the latest stable and official version of Blender.
  • We have solved the problem of compatibility with Cycle first, now a new documentation can be edited.
  • Volumetric rendering with eevee imposes limits that do not depend on us, to get very sharp clouds you have to increase the "ClipStart" distance of the camera, this problem exists because volumes do not emit shadows with eevee. This update (EEVEE's Future of the Blender Foundation will solve this problem. *Note: This limit does not exist with Cycle rendering. 
  • Generating volumes requires good machine performance, make sure your equipment is suitable for this. Hardware configuration used for the demo: GPU RTX 2060, CPU I7 3.60Ghz, 16GBRam.

How to setup for Cycles rendering?

 

*Cycles rendering





Day & Night Cycle: Use the "Animate" property to automatically animate the cycle of a day without using an animation key. The higher the value you add, the faster the cycle will be. (Look at the clock and calendar to see exactly how much time has passed).



Paintable Clouds: Organize an interface to paint then select the texture named "Paint Mask", activate in the volume panel the "clouds" then the property "Paint Clouds Mode", increase the property (Coverage to 1.1 or more) then start painting.



Thunderstorm: Use the "Blue Sky /Thunderstorm" property to make the stormy sky appear by adding only two animation keys.



Atmosphere: Place the camera at the right altitude to see the atmosphere.



Planete: Easily create science fiction scenes by adding planets, spaceships or huge buildings in the background. (three planets are included, earth, moon and mars).



Procedural Water: Use the procedural shader to quickly create an ocean.


Sun: Use the "Sun Diameter" property to resize the sun.



Moon: Use the "Moon Diameter" property to resize the Moon. The angle of the moon also adapts automatically to the time of day, when it is midnight the shadows become hard and when it is 6am the shadows become soft.


Sun Shadow: The sun angle setting is perfectly synchronized with the size of the sun, which results in more realistic shadows. The angle of the sun also automatically adapts to the time of day, when noon arrives the shadows become hard and when the sun goes down at 18H the shadows become soft.


Aurora Borealis: The volumetric aurora borealis gives a better rendering with Cycles.

Strong points


  • Easy to animate.
  • Generates a realistic sky.
  • Includes shadow catcher.
  • Includes an editable tornado.
  • Includes a clock and a real time calendar.
  • Allows you to display a stormy sky in one click.
  • Can be animated without using an animation key.
  • Volumetric rendering now supported for "Cycle".
  • Offers the possibility to fly into space with a 360° view.
  • Directly includes real-time lens Flares and lens dirt with automatic obstacle detection.
  • Includes volumetric clouds generated directly in the world. You can fly in any direction to infinity.

Weak points

  • The lens flares do not detect obstacles with "Cycle".
  • The volumes do not generate shadows and reflection "eevee".

Objectives

Updates

4.5

Performance improvement.
Procedural ocean shader added.
Aurora Borealis volumetric added.
Lens flares are now visible with "Cycle".
Stellar" version for space animation is now available.
Indirect light setting of the sky node has been improved.
The sun and moon angle settings are now synchronized with the size of the disks.
Shadow catcher now automatically adapts to cycle when you change render. *Note: Color shadows are not compatible with "Cycle".
Atmospheric nodes have been improved, you can choose between a dome or flat atmosphere. *Note: For panoramic renderings with "Cycle" use only the flat mode.
Volumetric renderings are now supported for "Cycle". *Note: in the atmosphere node, enable the "flat" mode for "Cycle" renderings and in the cloud node set the "anisotropy" property to "0" or "0.5".
