Skydome Maker


From Markus Kothe

The other day a was searching the internet for some skydomes to use for easy and nice reflections and AO light. When I didn't found any I liked I said to myself...

"Why don't I make some myself? Blender should be capable of that"

So now I have set up a system for easy making of sky domes. Skymaker is available for download at it's homepage


  1. Great! I dunno how long I was trying to make sky domes when I was struggling through learning Maya, (a long time ago before I found Blender)

    Well done de done!

  2. "Ooooh I don't like these stuff, why don't I make some myself? Blender should be capable of that"

    <---- That is the magic of Blender :p

  3. I use this method all the time. At one time I was going to release a "Sky Materials" .blend file with a lot of cool skys I've done in Blender, but never got the time.

    And, to make the clouds look better, I suggest turning up the Noise Depth.

  4. This is extremely helpful. Thanks Markus!
    If only I had a dollar for every time I heard "I couldn't find any, so I made one myself." Or better yet, if only I could make one myself every time I needed some resource...

  5. Thanks! i gained some new insight in lighting a scene. I'm going to play around a lot with this thing i'm sure.

  6. good one for newbieess dude exercised commonsense if only more blender users did that we would have a blender with lotta stuff makers eg clothes maker(needed ) ,shoe maker(needed), and alot more to think of if only i knew as much of python as the guys who use the bge lol till than your stuck with ya brian unless somebody makes an effort like this guy good thanls markus kothe very clever
