This addon saves hours that usually are invested in manually creating sky, atmosphere and placing sun object and stars, and automates it within a single click.
We have more than a decade of experience with atmosphere rendering techniques in computer graphics industry. Physical Starlight and Atmosphere addon is used in entertainment, film, automotive, aerospace and architectural visualisation industries.
Presets allow to store a snapshot of your customized atmosphere settings and return to it later or use already predefined presets provided by the addon.
We use a procedural method of calculating the atmosphere based on many tweakable parameters, so that sky color is not limited only to the Earth's atmosphere.
Works well in combination with Blender Sun Position addon. You can simulate any weather at any time.
