Thank you, I wasn't happy with some of my volumetric light tests in DAZ Studio so I went back to basics, one light, something to shine it through and something to shine it on. I used "AtmoCam for Iray", but it takes forever to render to get the light rays.  I really liked the idea of the shadows coming to life ;) (Wink)

Sometimes, simple is best. I'm struggling now with the light settings but looking at your work gives me a pretty idea to what can be done. Shadows coming to life...that's a great idea;P

Yeah it was a nice touch, hauntingly beautiful.

On a technical note, how did you minimise the noise in the render?

I render everything at double the final size and cut it in half when I finish it.  This gest rid of most of the noise and allows me to use fewer Iray iterations ;)

Romantic and nice use of shadows. The light flowing from the ornate window goes well with their dance. Nice work Joe!
