Here's a nice little page for slightly old but decent methods for cloud rendering and lighting, should be plenty of fast for current hardware. (there's descriptions for single and multis cattering methods, imposters, volume etc.)


The method which was used in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight.

One easy way would be starting with cube and normalize the vertex posistions to a sphere.

In Topic: Stencil shadow volumes - constraints on models too delicate?

you also might want to check research found here.


They have many papers on stencil shadows, including a good way to do area shadows with correct penumbra.

And source code as well..

In Topic: CryENGINE 3 Irradiance Volumes vs Frostbite 2 Tiled Lighting

So this is like an advanced version of the tiled deferred shading method?Is there a source with more info on this technique?

The link had paper about the tech.

They also had new paper about tiled forward shading at siggraph, but there is only pre-print available.
It focuses on the ability to light transparent surfaces
