CIELO is a growing collection of hand painted, highly detailed 360° backgrounds for your Blender scenes. Each background comes in 16K resolution, allowing you to zoom into details and works with both Eevee and Cycles!

CIELO is here to help you create lush environments for your scenes and characters! Do you ever find yourself searching for the perfect stylized background? Maybe you just want some green mountains on the background, a cloudy sky, some snowy peaks, or maybe a rocky desert?

Choose from four beautiful environments and give life to your 3D scenes. Our environments have real-world variation and you will not find any repetition or tiling whatsoever!

CIELO is as easy as drag & drop from the Blender asset browser! A full 360° painting is now surrounding your scene!

CIELO is fully interactive and works in both Cycles and Eevee render engines.

CIELO is a stunning stylized background painted on a giant dome around your scene and characters!

CIELO comes with it's own user friendly interface, allowing you to access all the available settings from one place!

CIELO is fully integrated with Blender's physical sky models.  Our goal is to give you as much control as possible if you want it, or just use it out of the box, it's up to you!

Color:  Control the color of the sky and the overall color and mood of your scene, as the sky will tint the whole image, just as in the real world!

Tint Matte: Don't want the sky to tint the matte as much? No problem! This will control how much influence the sky color has on your overall scene.

Use Physical Sky: Fan of the NPR look? Lower the physical sky influence or disable it completely!

Physical Sky Type: Choose from Blender’s physical sky models: Preetham, Hosek/Wilkie or Nishita.

Exposure: Control the exposure of the physical sky to add more light to the scene or take away from it.

Sun Direction: You can control the direction from where the sun is shining and even how low or high it is in the sky, affecting the time of day!
