How about "Volumetric caustics" ?

Example.. Disco ball in a smoky room..
the spotlights would have some volumetrics, but what about the reflected light from the ball?

is this silly?

That's not silly, just so computationally intensive that you may not wanna use it for a production ;o). Especially since there is so little control over volumetrics and caustics in LW, it quite possibly would not look like the real thing anyway.

TSpyrison... this is absolutely not silly!

Many other apps actually have Volumetric Caustics but I doubt we'll see them soon; this is another adspect of LW's renderer revamp!

Bye.
