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.  Then I liked the idea of the shadows coming to life ;) (Wink)

how did you get the atmosphere? I always understood that Daz fogs used planes to simulate this effect but that's like real dust and smoke. I suppose that's 'volumetric'. It must eat memory for breakfast?

I used AtmoCam for Iray. It doesn't take much memory, but it does add so much to the render time because it has to render out all the particles ;)

oh, great, thanks so much for your help. I've already learnt loads from you. I've got Reality but I'd not used it. I only started using DS in May so I've got loads to learn. I bought AtmoCam in a sale (as I do everything) knowing I'd take time to get around to using it. I forget what I've bought sometimes. :laughing: It's only now I'm beginning to get a handle on rendering, but I've had Photoshop for years and still learning in that so I can't imagine how long it will take me to catch up in Daz. :laughing:

You can get the same effect using Reality.  I tried it in this experiment.  Conspirators of Light by JoePingleton   
This was my first attempt after watching the fog tutorial at preta3d.com/video-tutorial-cre…

I actually had to look really close to see it well. These old eyes of mine even with glasses are not the greatest!  It was a very sensual kind of image.  Graceful and intimate in the way dancers appear when they dance.

The trick with volumetric light always seems to be just use one light o everything get "muddy"

It seems volumetric light works best with one spot light in DAZ Studio, otherwise the compete with each other sc - :light:
