The Clouds generator creates an animated cloud pattern. You can modify or animate the color, scale, speed, and strength of the cloud layers.
Adjust this generator using the controls in the Generator Inspector:
Horizontal Scale: A slider that simulates zooming into or out of the cloud pattern by horizontally scaling the generator. Larger numbers indicate a higher level of zoom.
Vertical Scale: A slider that simulates zooming into or out of the cloud pattern by vertically scaling the generator. Larger numbers indicate a higher level of zoom.
Speed: A slider that sets the speed of movement of the clouds. Values range from 0 to 2.
Gradient: Controls that set the color gradient used for the clouds. For information on using gradients, see Use the gradient preset pop-up menu.
Method: A pop-up menu that sets the algorithm used to generate the clouds. Values can be set to Normal (default) or Turbulent.
Offset: Value sliders that set the coordinates of the center of the clouds. Coordinates are calculated from the center of your object, which is the coordinate origin. (You can also use the Adjust Item tool to adjust this parameter using onscreen controls. For more information, see Modify or animate a generator.)
1st Layer Strength, 2nd Layer Strength, 3rd Layer Strength, 4th Layer Strength: Sliders that sets the strength of each of the four layers of clouds. Values range from 0 to 1.
