Today I did some tests with lights. Strange thing is that If I want to add volume effects in the testmodel, nothing happens.If I make a new model, and add some lights with volume effects however,it does work.
Does anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance Louis
Unfortunately it wasn't the solution. The units of the file are meters.
You're right, I have this slightly confused with the solar volume lighting. Last time I tried this was in an atrium and I made the solar light have the volume. You have to place the solar volume relative to the model.
I don't use it for my renderings since it takes so much longer to render.
Looking at your settings it appears like it should work. Can you email me the file and I will take a look.
I just mailed a package file of the model.
The volume effect is there its just being washed out by the white reflecting walls of your test scene and when you adjust the image brightness to compensate for this the effect is lost. In the image below I changed the colour of the material to blue and increased the density and scattering of the volume effect to make it more pronounced. It does appear there is a bug here as you can see the volume effect behind the wall. I will have to follow up on that.
