Creating Atmosphere for planets.....

Recommended Posts

Hey, I''m trying to develop good cloud cover for my planets. This is what I have so far(www.laeuchli.com/jesse/). What I''ve been doing is mapping a transperant cloud texture to a sphere, and drawing the planet inside the sphere. This hasn''t been working to great :-(. Anyone have any better ideas?

There was a post about this a while back on Flipcode. The technique used was this: a ring (tristrip) was made around the planet, that would always face the camera (billboard). It was textured with a cloud texture that faded out. That should take the sharp edges off your cloudsphere and make it look good.
