Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Light scattering

I need help in building realistic light scattering in my scene. I have sun light in my scene and some indoor lights.

I want results like in this image... Look how beautifully the light bounces up from the ground from the sunlight and the light scattering from the wall light stripes.alt text

I tried to use the emissive colour option in the material option but it didn't work at all. It is just creating a light around the object, but it is not illuminating anything.....alt text

Please help me to achieve proper results for both of these light effects: 1. Surface light bounce and scattering 2. Light scattering from an object and illuminating other objects in range.

Thanks in advance...........

1 answer: sort voted first

you probably need baked lightmaps, if you're not already using them. emissive materials by default will not light other objects; there's a setting you can check to enable them to bake lightmaps.
