Boy! The LW WIKI Facebook page is Blowing up!
facebook ease of uploading videos and images got a plethora of test and jaw drops.
The planet fly through with volumetrics (even at low res) is awesome power of LW 2018

Upgrade!!!

yes..planet clouds will be easier, though I wonder at what scale he did this, once you need to through in real life objects etc, it may not hold up..though I may be wrong if thatīs exactly what he used for scale.
I do not have facebook and can not post there on lightwiki, so if anyone knows or care to ask over there to make that clear about the scaling? that would be nice to hear.

I am pretty much working on the same thing, but I am not at the point with the clouds yet; working on the planet and atmosphere stuff first.

I only wish the Incidence node was available on volumetric primitives; but maybe I'm doing it wrong. That would make the atmosphere a lot easier.

I donīt think you would need an incidence, may be enough with light info and some other nodes.

check this thread..I just tried some planet model, just whipped it up for trying some color variations in the clouds., se last page, it is without a proper atmosphere though, and the surface was just a volumetric item as well..just to whip it up fast, I should replace that with real geometry.
I think at larger scales it may become quite slow to render, so I am guessing the planet animation may have been not that large in scale.
