    Where are the Volumetric Clouds?

    According to the roadmap, version 4.25 should introduce (experimental) volumetric clouds. Not in the release notes, not in the docs and not in the editor I can find anything about it. Were these not introduced with the 4.25 or are they just hidden because of the experimental status?

    You have to enable the Volumterics Plugin.
    After restarting there is a example map under Volumetrics\Content\Content\Sky\Maps.

            For anybody who is a novice like me, do the following:

            Edit/Plugins/Built-In/Rendering/ (or just type volumetric in the search bar) and then click "Enabled". Restart.
            File/Open Level.../Volumetrics Content/Sky/Maps Then open one of the two levels to see them in action. It's pretty cool.

                I'm using UE 4.25 now... there is no "volumetric content" in the directory so, what should import it and from where?

                        Imported from where?

                        Edit*
                        So make sure you have "Show engine content" and "show plugin content" checked in the content browser.

                        The volumetrics content folder will now be visible.

                          visible yes but how can I put it in my scene?
                          I mean I've just dragged the proper bluprint and all in the scene but clouds are still not showing

                            You need to change some of the parameters because the default scales are off. You can reference the example scene to get new values as a starting point.
