    I think the original made $13 million at the BO, but it's been popular on video for around 35 years. That's got to be worth something.

    Just use one big cloud ball at the top instead of a lot of particles. It's a lot faster and easier to control and looks better and animates better.

    Yes, but we assume by now Lightwave isn't a hostile piece of code trying to take over our computer, for the most part. It isn't going to do anything with elevation that it didn't do without it.

    This has nothing to do with resolution. It is color quantization related. You'll want to use more than 8 bits per channel, or do a full-precision blur filter to it after loading it, or the mip-map...
