Flamingo nXt

easy rendering for Rhino in Windows

Is there anyway I can produce visible light beams? I'm working on a stage scene with "concert" lighting and it would improve the effect if the beams could be seen.

This effect is possible, but it is not clear if it is practical.  Here are some notes on the effect that may help:


I set

  • Transparency to 1.00
  • IOR to 1.00
  • Scattering to .005
  • Make the material just off completely white.
  • Use the pathtracer engine.

This effect can take a long time to calculate.

I'm stuck at "On the Advanced Lighting tab, click the Enable box in the Fog group." 

Where is this 'fog' setting on Flamingo nXt?? I can't see it anywhere.

The Fog setting is a post process.  You add it after rendering.  It is located in the Post Process panel in the render window:


The effect you are seeing in my rendering is not Fog.  It is a cube that has a scatting material assigned to it.  The light is passing through that cube. You can download the 3dm in the post above to see the details.
