How to generate a sky and save it as Png

( we take sky1 as an example but this is the same for sky3 )

  1. Open the main.pc file in the sky1 folder. ( either via the file menu or via the shortcut ctrl+o )

  1. The generator will load.
  2. In the graph panel, select the rightmost node. It should have a grey box around it, saying "Select this node to see the final result". And should be named "final result".
    1. Tips : right click to move the graph panel, middle button to zoom/unzoom. if you're lost click on show all. 
      To get the complete set of command, go to Shortcut / Cmds in the Help menu. 
  3. Shift-left click the final node to lock the view. An eye should appear above the node. 

  1. wait for the generator to generate. the spinner on the tool bar will tell you when its done, 

  1. Click on Export / To Png in the menu bar. choose the destination. 

How to modify the output

The graph have a few comment boxes that documents what can be changed. In sky1 / main.pc, The canvas size, The sun position, the sky gradient, the clouds colors can be changed. 

To change a value, you need to : 

  1. Select the value node you want. 
  2. Modify its values in the property panel.

3. Click back to the final result node.  Not needed if you have locked the view.  see above. 

4. Let it regenerate the data.

5. Save it if you like it. 

Things that will break the pack

Don't rename or move any file in the project. Don't rename the project folder. ( this is a current limitation of the dependency management. Sorry )

Going further

If you're familiar with Rectitude's workflow, you can go further and open and edit the generators used by the main one. ( If you're not very familiar with Rectitude's workflow, I would advise reading the Rectitude tutorial and try to do some project with it. )

To navigate to subgraphs, just right click on a node and click "open graph", Rectitude will then open the corresponding file. You can edit it and then do Ctrl+Alt+Left to come back to the main one. 

If you break your project, just download it again from and restart .
