We're on a tight schedule for a project and need to create a building cumulus cloud that moves as if it were shot in time lapse photography. We don't have a lot of time and wonder if anyone has recommendations for a plug-in that would give us a good head start rather than having to start from scratch.

I would suggest Afterburn. While it's mainly a smoke and combustion generator, it does some pretty fantastic clouds as well. The learning curve can be a bit steep, but if you're into Max, you know deep learning curves. Here's a short tutorial on clouds in Afterburn:


Dreamscape, from the same company, Sitni Satni (afterworks.com) also makes this plugin, which has some very nice, animatable clouds in its' own right. Some Afterburn samples are here:
