Volume Box

Volume box is a cuboid shaped volume that can be used to simulate:

  • Fog, haze or mist that hides objects behind it. If boxes with fog intersect, denser fog is created.
  • Clouds or shaped fog.
  • Light shafts from the world light source. For sun beams to fall through windows and other openings, the room should be inside the box.
