If possible could we see a 'Improved volumetrics' option?
Specifically render speed and previewing in IR as well as being able to render volumetrics from within a volume.

Heck yes +1

Volumes are pretty limited in Corona actually.

Id love a method of varying the volume density in 3d to simulate uneven atmospherics.

This can be done already with the Corona Volume material, switch to Inside Volume mode and a 3D noise can be fed into any of the channels - if you mean something else, please specify :)

Hi. I would really like to have the Clouds that's in the newest Vray. Wanted this for years.
Why aren't this on the list?

Well...TIL about the 3D Noise map...

+1 Clouds would be a great addition.

Really? They would need to look 99% realistic for me to use them instead of photos

Everyone has different standards. Personally i'm too lazy to do background replacement (or in fact any post-processing) outside of Corona, so my skies are almost always empty. Procedural clouds would be great addition for me, even if not very physically accurate or photo realistic. As long as they would look pretty, i'm perfectly happy with that and from what i saw in V-Ray videos, they look pretty darn good.

Even when they're not realistic enough for direct visibility, they may be invaluable tool for modulating the light quality (both inside and outside).

Agree, would also be very useful for more detailed and interesting reflections for exteriors.

So you think that the clouds will affect the lighting? Wow, i didn't think about that. They probably will be quite expensive to render then.

I'm pretty sure Vray implementation was done in the way clouds affects the lighting. That's what I was actually the most amazed by and I really look forward to seeing it in Corona.
It's already on Trello board board V9 so cannot wait to see it in dailies.

Could they work otherwise anyway?

I'm sure the quality will be upgraded with time (as was the case with CSky models), but if it's like what's available in VRay, it'll will be yet another great tool to control the lighting and general mood. At least!

They do affect the lighting (basing this on the V-Ray ones which I played with quite a lot), so you can have them cast shadows on the ground for instance, and as the clouds animate and move, so the lighting changes and an area can move from being in shadow to being illuminated. It's rather cool. Of course the clouds are rarely the "point" of an image and not meant to be what people are looking at, just to fill in the background, and they work great for that (without the render time hit that comes from a full volumetric solution).

Sounds great! Can't wait to see cloudy Corona sky for once :]
