Today we learn SkyDomes! They are completely different than a SkyBox so don't get confused. There are two types in the NeoAxis engine the first is very simple 2D based that will tile an image(s) of your choosing over a SkyDome.
The second is much more complicated, but provides different results and allows for full 360 degree panoramic photos and art to be used instead of a single tile-able image.
In this three part video you will learn the following:
- Create a 360 Degree Panoramic Photo from 6 SkyBox images.
- Use Gimp to properly edit TIFF file of combined 6 images, convert to DDS.
- Create cloud layers for non-panoramic SkyDome using random fractal noise generators and simple tricks to make nice looking skies.
- Create self-sustaining conversation workflow for creating 360 degree panoramic skydomes using TerraGen and simple script.
