Working with cycles. Can we create god rays with the png transparent image. I have setup all the scene. With sun lamp and a transparent png image. But the light is not going through the image and making the rays. Any suggestion how it works. Thanks.

  • $\begingroup$ Rays are there because of some atmospheric dust or fog. Dont know if the PNG let the light comes through as glass material (I would expect it does), but if there arent any particles, you wont see any light beams. $\endgroup$ – Fowl May 21 '20 at 14:06

Decrease the Density of your Volume Scatter down to 0.007, switch from Sun to Spot, increase its Power up to 20,000, and Alleluia!!

  • $\begingroup$ what do you mean? if you want a god ray effect, try to close your space like a real church, so that it doesn't affect everywhere, and use a strong light, otherwise you won't have a god ray effect. I didn't have to use a closed space because I've used a Spot $\endgroup$ – moonboots May 21 '20 at 17:20
