      Hi! There are a few reasons that might cause the addon to not work as smoothly as expected, one of them being other addons interfering with PSA. You can reach our support by writing a message through blendermarket or by joining our discord community

    Excellent Addon, I can't recommend it enough.

    I initially started using RealSky when I jumped to Blender, but it gave me some issues when baking textures.
    Really, out of necessity I started using PSA but it is so much more than an alternative to RealSky. I like RealSky but PSA gave that kick to my renders that improved them immediately out of the box. The documentation is clear and there's a lot of parameters to mess around and make your scene look that much better the way you want it to.

    Excellent product.

    This addon is absolutely awesome, I can't praise it enough. It is particularly great at matching VFX lighting to real images. I rarely use HDRIs for outdoor scenes anymore. Great documentation, and responsive devs on their discord. Thanks :)

    Honestly PSA have been through most of my workflow it added more life to my renders even more realistic look to my renders and even futuristic the add-on is really customizable when it comes to worlds and adjusting it is beginner friendly too, also the guys there are supportive and very helpful, looking forward for future updates.

    Highly realistic atmospheric controls! Runs on Eevee! Well written manual!! and very professional customer support!!

    If they add physically accurate night sky function, this add-on would be omnipotent, for sure.(But, it wasn't so difficult to add them by our own side, thanks to the PSA's generous customer support! )

    There are many great Addons on this Website. And this one is for me one of the most essential ones. It is a must-have for me for almost all projects and improves the Realism by a mile for most Scenes. It does sometimes take quite a lot of Performance on a larger Scene. One small critique I have is that it needs manual adjustments for some shaders when using Object Fog if those Shaders are using alpha channels (such as Billboard Trees and such things)
    It is clear that if you do not have this addon you are missing out :)

      Hey Nils,
      Thank you so much for your kind words! ❤️ Are you part of our Discord community yet? We'd be thrilled if you could share your work in the #showcases section on our Discord channel. We would really love to see your work and what you're doing with the addon.

      Regarding the performance issues with larger scenes: can you elaborate a bit more on this? It would help us understand if there's anything we can do to optimize further. And about the alpha issues with Object Fog, I believe we addressed this concern a while ago. Could you please reach out to us referencing this review either on Discord ( ) or by emailing us at Keen to see what's the issue and try to sort it out.

      Looking forward to hearing from you!

    I've given up on this. I try to change the settings and it almost always never updates, it bugs out constantly. And ontop of that the clouds are basically unusable, and the stars are very basic. Better off finding something else.

      Hi Justin,

      Thank you for sharing your experience with our addon. It's crucial for us to hear from users like you, and I'm sorry that our product didn't meet your expectations.

      About the stars not meeting your hopes, we're constantly working on improving our features and your feedback is a valuable guide for us.

      Which versions of Blender and our addon are you using? Any error messages that you might have seen would be really helpful. Also, are you using Eevee or Cycles for rendering?

      Regarding the clouds: Can you give a bit more detail on what you found unusable? This would immensely help us in refining them.

      We'd really appreciate it if you could reach out to us directly either on our Discord help channel ( or at It's essential for us to understand these issues firsthand, and it'll be more efficient for us to guide you through any solutions.

      Lastly, if you decide our addon isn't the right fit, please remember we have a 30-day refund policy which you can access through Blender Market.

      Best Regards,
      Karlis Upitis

    Good addon. Useful for adding a sky easily for renders. The clouds are not the best and look kinda flat; if they could be rounder & thick that would be so much better. I think the star generation is great but it could use more color variety.

      Hi! Thank you for the review and we're glad you enjoy our product. The star temperature can vary the color of the starfield.
