3D Nebula Generator Update

Thanks to Blender's latest advancements in the EEVEE rendering system an updated 3D version of the Nebula Generator is now available Blender Market, free to existing users.

This 3D version will remain experimental for the moment as there are some strobbing artefacts whilst rendering animations in EEVEE, which although can be countered by high sample values, does impact performance.

The 2D version, available in the same bundle, is still available and has been updated for Blender 2.8 allowing greater control:

The file is documented with a set of how-to instructions and is free to existing users.

Hope you enjoy and do contact me via Blender Market for feedback as I continue to develop it.

  1. Mark, all your add-ons are fantastic! I own several already and they're my favorite ones. I followed your steps for nebula creation, by creating my own altered node setup with your recipe from a few years ago, but may go ahead and add this dedicated add-on to the mix. :)
