View Full Version : Airliner over the clouds

09 September 2007, 04:16 PM
have a shot to do of an Passenger jet flying above the clouds. Does anyone know any cool ways to do this in Maya so that the sky/clouds and lighting etc look convincing. Im guessing I will have to make a skydome _ive done these before -no problem -the difference is with this shot I need to start the shot looking down on the plane which is above the clouds, then the camera tracks across and down so that we end up looking 'up' at the plane from behind as it flows off toward the sunset.

Any ideas/tips greatly appreciated.

MPs Ive also posted this in the 3d max forum as at the moment Im undecided which to use for this shot...

Check Maya Fluids.There are some nice sky/clouds examples.
