I need some cloud formations
(specifically for a flying scene)

they don't need to move but they need to stay in one spot and not go out of the canvas

also could someone tell me how to do it
(considering it is possible.)
that would be a great engine for Elab and Vlab

If I understand you correctly, it sounds like you could just take a picture of the sky on a cloudy day yourself.

Agreed.

NOTE: I know it is possible to make these in Sony Vegas (it's a preset in one of the generated media options)

no they need to be animated like a cloud moving

but it needs to be snall enough to stay in the canvas

In your first post, you say the clouds don't need to move. In your second, you say they need to be animated, like a cloud moving. Confusing.

Still seems like something you could shoot yorself with a video camera and a tripod. Just need to wait for the right weather.

There is stock footage of clouds available inexpensively at www.istockphoto.com such as the clouds used in this tutorial. Not sure if they have exactly what you are after, but its worth taking a look.

the clouds dont need to get bigger or smaller like in the tutorial

but they need to accumulate

I found some stock footage that might work although I will have to rotoscope it
