The Ozone 2015 plug-in lets you create and render hyper-realistic skies and atmospheres in 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage, Lightwave and Cinema4D.
Ozone 2015 implements the cutting-edge technologies developped by e-on software for the simulation and rendering of atmospheric effects. Its atmospheres provide an accurately simulated environment that affects all elements of your scenes and behaves according to nature?s rules.
With its easy to use interface and wide range of features, Ozone 2015 is the essential tool for animators and still creators seeking professional atmospheric results.
Bright sunshine, glorious sunsets, bad weather, moonlit nights ? Ozone 2015 handles them all. With over 100 predefined atmospheres and an intuitive interface, you can achieve exactly what you had in mind in minutes!
Customize every aspect of the atmosphere. Raise and lower the sun or change the direction or color of the sunlight. Add storm clouds to create an ominous mood. Create a thick, moisture-laden atmosphere where objects get lost in the mist. Add layer upon layer of clouds, adjusting their complexity, density, altitude and shape. Add a rainbow for a special effect, or stars and ice rings. You are in total control.
With four atmospheric models ? spectral, volumetric, standard and environment mapping, over 100 preset atmospheres and 100 preset cloud shapes, Ozone 2015 is the most complete, realistic and productive solution for creating skies and atmospheres that come alive.
Your atmospheres can be as realistic as what you see out your window or they can be as imaginative as the green and purple sunsets of uncharted planets.
The new photometric sunlight model uses a real-world, physical simulation of sun and atmospheric lighting intensities. This new, scientifically accurate model offers an alternative to the more artistic approach of the existing Spectral model.
As a result, your renders will look more photo-real in a subtle way, and HDR renders will preserve all the range of the natural spectrum.
You can easily switch between the new photometric model and the standard spectral model; Ozone 2015 will make all the required changes automatically.
The Ozone 2015 render engine will automatically adapt to the host application's photometric model to provide seamlessly integrated lighting.
Ozone 2015 now supports Autodesk Media & Entertainment products up to release 2015 (3ds Max 2015, Maya 2015 and Softimage 2015), and also adds support for V-Ray 3 for 3ds Max (support V-Ray 3 for Maya is under development)*.
Ozone 2015 also now also supports Maxon Cinema 4D up to R16 and Newtek LightWave up to version 11.6.
* Support for the upcoming version of LightWave is also under development, and will be added to Ozone 2015 as soon as such new version is released.
Briefly tested in Cinema-4D R16, Maya 2016, and Lightwave 11.6
Vue xStream 2015, and Plant Factory 2015 are now vc100, and don't link with many of the older programs.
