This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


the volumetric part of the light could be a parented object on his own, with appropriate nodes and textures for emission, transparency, translucency, maybe in a separate layer to be blurred, alpha overed and color corrected.
