I remember when I first started studying 3D (with max actually) I used to like a lot this one:
http://www.evermotion.org/tutorials/show/7817/3dsmax-vray-volume-effect

Now, I'm a proud Lightwave user and max hater (just kidding), anyway I canīt seem to get this effect in LW, no problem with the volume light, iīm using a spotlight BTW since is the only one that'll give me both volume light and caustics, turned on caustics on render globals but canīt get the light reflect and generate caustics like it should (or like I want).

Is it possible to get a similar render with lightwave? or is it just a enhacement that Vray has and LW doesn't?

Hereīs the scene If someone would like to give it a try.
