Rough Guide to the Atmopshere Editor – Part 5 – Sky Tab

Part 5 of the guide relates to the sky tab in the atmosphere editor. All the renders on this page are at 800×600 and are rendered at Broadcast Quality.

Rough Guide to the Atmopshere Editor – Part 2 – Sun Tab

The settings are pretty much identical in each of the models so this will be a relatively short episode.
