View Full Version : volumetric lighting issue

06-01-2005, 06:12 PM
I am having a problem with volumetrics. I am setting up and indoor scene and I want to have the light rays showing, so i used volumetrics. But when I render, the rays do not show. The light is coming through the window and i need the shadows to be seen in midair. (i did use a shadow map). Any ideas of what I am doing wrong would be great.

Shadow maps don't recognize transparency, so a glass window pane will cast a black shadow, so you won't see the volumetrics -
