Hi guys,

I am currently trying to do a cloudscape with Houdini's CloudFX and was hoping that you guys can give me some advice.

 

I am trying to form clouds like this reference image

But using following the cloudfx tutorials only gives me spherical clouds as the image below:

Here is some hero cloud stillframe renders:

So, my question is how do I go about doing those elongated shape clouds? Do I need to model out a similar shape and copy to a template or is playing with the cloud node settings enough.

 

Thanks!

If you're using the cloud rig tool you can scale/model your geo input as well as scale the noise pattern. With the sky rig scaling the noise will stretch the shapes.

Hi, just a small question. By noise, you mean cloud noise node or cloud node? Thanks for the reply!
