View Full Version : Volume Lights Blow out the speakers

Are cloudy volume lights just a false promise?

These are some frames form a scene I setup. I let it render while I was on vacation so each frame took 20 some minutes, and all the volume lights are on the "Best" quality level.

Each spotlight has a colored projection image, and then goes through a plane with a transparensy BW mask of tree branches.

Is there a way I can make this work? I'm running 7.5c right now, but I just ordered the toaster upgrade with LW 8.5, so maybe that will fix it, and triple the render speed. And add little fairys fluttering through the lights, with thier wings swirling the clouds, and pixy dust. And a PONY!
