Softening the Edges of God Rays

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

I was asked how to soften the edges of the god rays falling on the ground when following my Punching Holes in the Sky tutorial. Fortunately its pretty straight forward: select the sun and in its settings change softness to something like 5 or 10 degrees to get a softer effect. You may need to play with other atmosphere settings or render settings to get the affect you are looking for and there are better tutorials about that out there than I could ever write.
