To use god rays, select a light and go to the Effects tab. The section for Gels can be set to Map and you can load whatever black and white you want (I used Andy’s :D ).

I think this is how they made the Bat signal.

lol! I lost the global illumination and also toned down the light, went from 31 hours to 8 hours rendertime, doing a looped movie from the png sequences instead.

HI Wendy smile

Nice tank and fishes smile

If you’re using indirect light,. try using the “AO only” option, Ambient Occlusion is less to calculate and there’s little visible difference and a bit time difference,. but the use of Indirect light, depends on the objects around the scene which light would bounce back from, like walls and ceilings,.. so if for example, If you have a glass on a table, then the table will bounce most of the light up, and the glass surfaces allow most of the light to pass through, so… depending on what’s in you’re scene, it can be a waste of time to use indirect light,.. I usually try scenes with a much lower quality render, before I think about using any indirect, light or things like Caustics.

Also,.. try a render with “Gamma correction” enabled, and set it to 1.8 or 2.0 which should lighten the whole scene.

Under “atmosphere”.. In the Realistic Sky editor, there’s an option to enable “sun beams” (god rays)
but… in practice, it’s much simpler and more predictable to use a “light gel” image, on a “spot light”,  to give you god rays or caustics.

I’m also with Big H, on the practical use of caustic soda for clearing drains,.. it’s great for clearing moss from path’s too smile

I won’t spam the thread too much by posting the image, but This is a pure Bryce render, with crepuscular rays, called dancing in the moonlight.  http://www.daz3d.com/index.php?&ACT=50&fid=38&aid=27610_XqYtL1uIflf1N3nmS3av&board_id=1
