VOLUMETRICS in M3D!!!! :w00t:

Yep, you read right folks - the new version of M3D now has the facility to render
volumetric light! This will add a whole new level of potential creativity to what is
already a superb piece of fractal software!

As always, get your free download from FractalForums at: www.fractalforums.com/index.ph…

In Jesse's own words:

"Not sure if this release is too early, but someone might use it for the FractalForums
contest so here it is....and I need some rest!

Please look at the readme for some explanations for the new volumetric function.

What is new in version 1.8.9:

-  Volumetric light option. :D
-  Some issues fixed.
-  Changing between relative and absolute light angle for global lights preserves the
  current angle.
-  Formula update, some sine approximation adds with more options."

I suspect that we'll be seeing a lot of amazing lighting effects over the next few weeks! :nod:

It can be found in the 'colouring' tab on the main screen Minia. Just click
the 'Dyn fog on its' button to reveal it. :thumbsup:
You may want to check out the two tut's by bib993 :iconbib993: and Hal tenny:iconhaltenny:
in our 'tutorials and resources' folder too. :nod:

Thank you so much.
I've got it Love  I downloaded a new version of the Mandelbulb,
got the new formulas, I'm quite pleased with it. Now I'm learning
about the Maps and the Volumetric lighting. Thanks again Thank you! Thank you!

yeah I fixed it myself but thanks :> Looks like when I unpacked it an ran first time, it asked if I wantd to use old parameters or such and I accidently hit yes, and guess were not compatible, I deleted folder and re-unpacked and worked fine :>

I had to Google 'Volumetric Lighting' to find out what it meant ... Turns out it's something that I've been wanting to do but didn't know the right name for it ... :slow:

Aww what? :O_o: VL can be a bit fiddly to get into Patty, but
persevere and I'm sure you'll soon get the hang of it? :nod:
Or don't you like the effect in general?

A bit of both ha ha am too lazy to learn and persist , plus I never really cared for the lights that others have in their render :) But I love seeing other peoples renders like yours :)
