well, im probably going to sound like an asshole. I might just be hung over and grumpy today, but basically i don't want to do your course for you. the other thread you have (with pretty much the same name) has had two people make videos for you, with pretty little thanks.
part of the 3D is working out how to do things for yourself. Have you tried the things you suggested? I dont know what your skill set is, and i don't know what the storm is supposed to look like in shot. these things make it hard to say what will work for you.
