Cloud Keyframe¶

struct simul::clouds::CloudKeyframe : public simul::sky::BaseKeyframe¶
The keyframe structure for clouds, used by simul::clouds::CloudKeyframer.
Public Members

float cloudiness¶
The density of the cloud layer at this time.

float distribution_base_layer¶
Start of the transition from the cloud base to the upper cloud (0 to 1)

float distribution_transition¶
The transition from the cloud base to the upper cloud (0 to 1)

float upper_density¶
The proportion of cloud density retained in the upper layer, above the distribution_transition.

float cloud_base_km¶
The base altitude of this cloud layer.

float cloud_height_km¶
The height of the cloud layer, above its base altitude.

float cloud_width_km¶
The width of the cloud layer in km, or the repeatlength.

vec3 scale_km¶
For nonrepeating clouds, the shape scale.

int octaves¶
The number of noise octaves used to generate the clouds; default 3.

float persistence¶
The fractal persistence for generating the clouds, default 0.45.

float fractal_amplitude¶
The strength of the fractal edge effect.

float edge_sharpness¶
The sharpness to be applied in rendering a the boundary.

float churn¶
The strength of the cloud edge churning effect  larger values for more turbulent clouds.

float precipitation¶
The amount of rain/snow etc.

float rain_to_snow¶
If zero, precipitation is interpreted as rain. If one, it is snow.

float precipitation_base_km¶
The lowest altitude that the precipitation can occur; the highest altitude is dictated by cloud_base_km.

float diffusivity¶
How much the edges of clouds should be diffused.

float max_density_gm3¶
Grams per cubic metre. Default is 0.5.

float base_noise_factor¶
What proportion of noise is applied at the cloudbase, between 0 and 1.0.

vec2 offsetKm¶
The calculated position offset of this keyframe due to the accumulation of wind motion.

float simulation¶
If 1.0, cloud volume is simulated. If 0.0, it is generated by fractal.

float worley_noise¶
How much Worley (cell) noise to apply in cloud generation.

float worley_scale¶
Scale of the Worley noise. Will be locked to an integer if clouds are wrapping.

float edge_worley_noise¶
The strength of the fractal worley edge noise.

float cloudiness¶
