In this scene I tried to make godrays in the forest based on =nukeation
's techniques. QuadSpinner's recently released "Sunbeams" scenes [link]
were really helpful; they helped me understand how specific atmospheric settings work and how to tweak them to achieve these nice rays
This image was rendered in almost 7 hours, with an atmosphere quality of +9! (it's needed to get these godrays)
Vue 8.5 Infinite + PS CS5 for minor color correction + falling leaves
Thanks for viewing!
