    Hi,

    I was just curious, is it possible to make the volumetric clouds appear below the world instead of above it?
    I have a scene with a player flying through the sky and they should be above the clouds, or flying through the clouds at least.

    I was kind of hoping I'd be able to enter negative values for "Bottom Altitude" to achieve this, but you can't. I tried lowering "Bottom Altitude" to its lowest, but this isn't giving me the result I wanted either.

    Is there a way to achieve this?

    Hi, have you tried moving the camera instead? I mean placing the camera (y coordinate) above the clouds' "Bottom Altitude".

    Also, you need to enable local volumetric clouds in another volume override. (Visual Environment -> Rendering Space -> World)
