Weather Particles - Rain, Snow, Fog, Lightning

0 ratings

Particle systems tend to have this overlay effect that feels artificial to the eye, especially when the particle system follows the camera as it moves. But instead of an overlay effect, we’re looking for one that feels like it belongs to the scene, giving it depth and atmosphere.

How do I activate an addon?

Is this an addon (script)?

  • No, it’s a plugin that uses a .blend file that has all the assets, textures and logic (node groups) inside for direct use. You can copy any of them over to any of your projects, while also preserving their original functionality. Before use, un-zip the archive.

I can’t find the particle systems in the file

  • Each particle system has its own scene. In order to access it, you have to change the scene.
