Placing Distance Clouds

Distance clouds are two-dimensional clouds that are placed at a great distance, such as on the horizon or at high altitudes. Distance clouds are suitable for creating a realistic distant sky scene without causing rendering performance issues. Distance clouds do not move and cannot be flown through.
