Volumetric Objects

Volumetric objects are used to simulate different kinds of volumes depending on their materials:

  • Visible light volumes (they are not light sources, they does not illuminate the scene):
    • Spheres of light around omnidirectional light sources
    • Beams from directional light sources
    • Light volumes around flat light emitters
    • Sun beams falling into a room through openings
  • Fog that obscures objects inside its volume
  • Clouds or shaped fog

Types of Volumetric Objects

There are four possible shapes for volumetric objects:

To create various effects described above, you need to assign them different materials. Some materials can be assigned only to one type of volumetric objects.
