Clouds flickering - need help on CG Short
We've been using a geometry solution to making our Heavenly clouds for our short film but we're having some flickering problems and Id love to solve the issue or find a good replacement.

We had an earlier version that looked flicker free but don't seem to be able to reproduce it now after a few years of evolution and changes. If anyone knows a good way to fast rendering clouds or would like to join the project to help out please let me know.

Here's our work in progress teaser trailer so that you can see what we have in mind:
