Design for three four dimensions

4D problem. Please consider exploring use of color and transparency to create 4D satellite animations, so the disorganized appearance of developing clouds is replaced with the natural organization. Tweaking the colors can help with that. Almost all groups of clouds rotate vertically, beginning with many small vortexes that tend to develop more organized wheels and spheres, unless and until they develop a rotating vertical pillar as they become cyclones. These vertical circles evolving into horizontal circles around pillars can be illustrated by using color and opacity to have higher clouds/moisture block views of lower clouds. Rising air can grow more opaque, sinking air more transparent. The satellites give you what they give you, but one simple tweak would be to move from white to light blue to darker blue to violet to red, with greater altitude (cooling), such that cooling cloud tops become darker. Currently you have white to dark blue to light blue to green etc. Viewers can learn to see what you have in 4D, but it's unnatural and maybe Windy can help with a color and transparency tweak. The 4D sky is a beautiful thing to see on our screens. Cheers.
