Use case

Atmospheric effect can be used to make the scene view look more realistic.

How to use the sample

Select one of the three available atmosphere effects. The sky will change to display the selected atmosphere effect.

How it works

  1. Create an ArcGISScene and display it in a SceneView.
  2. Change the atmosphere effect with sceneView.atmosphereEffect.

Relevant API

  • ArcGISScene
  • AtmosphereEffect
  • SceneView

Additional information

There are three atmosphere effect options:

  • Realistic - A realistic atmosphere effect is applied over the entire surface.
  • Horizon only - Atmosphere effect applied to the sky (horizon) only.
  • None - No atmosphere effect. The sky is rendered black with a starfield consisting of randomly placed white dots.
