I have a test scene where a very thin and bright spotlight (almost like a laser) shines on a diagonal mirror in a volume that scatters light, such that the light beam is directly visible. The mirror uses a 100% glossy material. The intention is to make the light bounce on the mirror. However, it seems the light beam disappears after bouncing in the mirror.
As you can see, the light beam is visible from the light source to the mirror, but then the light beam stops: it doesn't continue from the mirror to the cube. Is this a limitation in Cycles or do I need to enable some options somewhere? As far as I'm aware, I'm using Cycles' default settings. I've already tried increasing the maximum number of volumetric scattering events to no avail.
(I'm aware you could fake the effect by placing another spotlight on the surface on the mirror, pointing in the direction of the cube, but I'd like to do it the "proper" way if possible)
