Volumetric Lights

You need to be aware of one more area of LightWave lighting before you start working through exercises. Volumetric lighting is a powerful and surprisingly fast render effect that can create beams of light. Have you ever seen how a light streaks when it shines through a window? The beam of light that emits from the light source can be replicated in LightWave with volumetrics. Volumetric settings give a light source volume. Additionally, you can add textures to a volumetric light to create all sorts of interesting light beams. Coverage of volumetric lighting can be found in Chapter 9.
