volume scatter with sunlight

Postby Marcel2586 » Sun Jun 26, 2016 9:34 am

I try to use volume scatter with sunlight, but it has no effect.

it is a scene in the woods and i like to use dust in the sunlight.
For the bigger dust particles i made a dust .OBJ with 2000 particles and that is working.
but the beams do show with sunlight.

The settings are
Scatter on
Scattering color 12 12 12
inner volume is used in my cube.
this would be funny if it weren't happening to me :shock:

Update.

Scatter was off.
It is working, but you need a fog horn!
Way to much and no beams.
I think i need to drop the one box container and use multiple containers.
Or am i making it to difficult for myself.

OK, but I'm sure several people are already asking to have a look at the effect :)

Is it possible to change the color? if i am in the woods, the beams can turn to intense golden.
And leaves, do they break the beam as you expect? this i cannot see this back in my test render.

You can change the color of the volume, see the absorption value. Leaves should break the beams.
