Performance at first

Respect for performance is dear to us. Several hours of testing with some of the big names in the community went into making sure our product has little to no impact on performance. We think we have reached the perfect balance between incredible effects, great frame rates and an extremely low memory footprint.

Volumetric lighting

The volumetric lighting on the Boeing 747 is nothing short of spectacular! The many lights on the 747 makes a flight into foggy conditions a beautiful light show that you don’t want to miss! It adds another dimension to the exterior model which is, in and out of itself mesmerizing!

Cloud illumination

There are no words to express the stunning cloud illumination effect with the 747! The end-result is simply breathtaking and will forever change the way you approach a runway in bad weather conditions! Those beams lighting up the clouds ahead, with the runway slightly discernible in the distance is such a fascinating sight!

Wing condensation

The 747 has often been referred as the Queen of the Skies, a majestic airplane with a huge wingspan. The wing condensation effect is therefore quite imposing and very impressive! Once the condensation appears, you can feel the weight of the aircraft pulling against gravity! The condensation is faithfully, accurately and precisely shaped to fit the wing!

Jet wash

The jet wash effect in 747 Immersion is absolutely stunning! The amount of water washed away by the 747’s four hair-dryers will leave you completely bewildered! We have made sure to make the jet wash effect impressive as to leave no one disappointed with the grandeur of the effect!


With four engines, we needed to make the 747 Immersion contrails not only look, but feel genuinely impressive and true to life. There is something unique about the 747 contrails where the contrails are pushed downwards and in spiral behind the aircraft. It is something that 747 Immersion has succeeded in recreating, a truly beautiful sight that extends for miles back!

Engine condensation

747 Immersion comes with four engine-equipped condensation effect that add to the immersive ambiance of your flight. Whether you experience the condensation-filled engines at take off or on a go-around, you will be in awe by the clouds forming within the nacelles of the engines! It’s an awesome sight to see and one of the most loved effects!

+ many other effects

As always, 747 Immersion comes with all the other great quality effects that you have come to love from us. These include but are definitely not limited to brake dust upon gear retraction, runway turnoff lights volumetric lighting and wingtip and lift vane vortices.
