Product Information

  • Required Products: None

The effect of light rays through dust or other atmospheric particles can be difficult to achieve in 3D. This set makes it easy with a set of four transmapped props, all with smartprop options to a spotlight for easy addition to your DAZ Studio scene's lighting. Load the spotlight, point it where you want the rays, and load a ray prop – it's that easy.

The set contains a cone, cylinder, cube, and a morphing prop designed to imitate rays of light passing through window panes. Each comes with two transmap options for larger or smaller rays and four color options to get you started. There are also dust and snow shaders for scenes when you need to generally fill the air with particles.

The props and spotlight combine readily with both UberEnvironment and Advanced Ambient lights, providing flexible options for lighting in many types of scenes. They render quickly and efficiently, making it feasible to use multiples in a given scene.

Even if you already use haze cameras, these rays can still help your scenes when it comes to highlighting specific figures and areas, and they cause no issues with transmapped items in any lighting. Add them to your DAZ Studio lighting toolbox today!
