About Elementacular

Control clouds and effects entirely by geometry manipulations
Elementacular changes the way you work with volumes.
Normally creating clouds is a very time consuming complex process involving fluid simulations and complex final render setup.
Elementacular enables a dramatically different workflow allowing you to transform geometry into complex beautiful clouds by simply applying the Elementacular Cloud Shader to your piece of geometry.

You maintain full control over the cloud shape through direct manipulation of the underlying geometry -
event after it is converted into a cloud! If you do not like your resulting cloud - Go ahead and adjust the geometry, lighting or fractal.
Render photorealistic clouds in real-time.
The plugin gives real-time high-quality rendering directly in the viewport and supports advanced multi-scattering of light inside the cloud for added realism.
Because of this you are able to tweak the look of the cloud to your liking in a very direct manner.
