Was this volume light render by Vray or painted in photoshop ?

Hello itoosoft,
The volume light effect in the final picture of this tutorial (http://www.itoosoft.com/tutorials/tutorial_forestcolor.php) is so good. I wonder if it was render by Vray or painted in photoshop ? Was it VrayEnvironmentFog or tranditional MAX light volume effect if it was render by Vray ? How long did it take to render this Volume light pass ?

I am looking for a good method to make this volume light pass in Vray now.

Best wishes.

Hi,

In mentioned image "Final Image, with level adjustments, z-fog, and painted volume lights" it was archived in post-production stage (PS) as for stills it's probably the easiest & quickest way of doing it.

In case of animation, it usually worth of getting that effect directly from renderer. I would suggest you to check the official Chaos Group documentation of V-Ray for 3ds Max of the VRayEnvironmentFog feature. You might find useful also the following "Volumetric light" tutorial (there are many others covering that topic very well).

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
