Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Animating a Landscape with VUE.
- [Voiceover] Over the past couple of hours,…we've seen a lot of amazing results from VUE.…Its features for modeling, animating, and rendering…digital nature are very impressive.…In this course, I think I've made it look a bit easy.…Developing a shot like this takes a long time.…There are many variables, and it takes many hours…of experimentation and troubleshooting before you're…able to effectively art direct the result.…Of course, I didn't show you all of the experimentation.…I just showed the end result.…I just wanted to manage expectations here.…This process can be slow, but the effort is justified…when the result is outstanding.…
I hope you learned what you needed here,…and have fun building worlds in VUE.…Thanks a lot and goodbye.…

Realistic skies and lighting are achieved with the VUE photometric spectral atmosphere model. This course covers adding animation to plants, water, and clouds with procedural wind effects. Aaron also shows how to create camera movement by employing the Timeline's intuitive tools, including animation and curve editing. Rendering many animation frames poses challenges not experienced with still image rendering, and so the course concludes with key strategies for optimizing the balance between image quality and rendering time.
