Paradigma Shifting

Description: Back to the world of Paradigma i had my approach to the new volumetric light. Trying to keep the background i used it in a minimalistic way. Probably it would look more impressive if i had faked it but in this case i had to layer a separate dynamic fog render instead because it was replaced by the VL. I guess it would have been better the other way round. The foreground is a little bit dark but this is what a strong backlight does (i think).

Anyway .. to me it was nice to visit this place again and to see it in a different light. smiley
Hope you like it.

Very beautiful and Alien. I'm curious, what do you mean by MC?

Thanks for the positive feedback guys! happy

@Jesse: You make me curious. Maybe it leads to the long awaited volumetric dynamic enlightened fog. cheesy

@Johan: Believe it or not ... it is MC. You might see it in the discreet indirect lighting behind some of the bigger stones (or whatever it is grin ). But this is just one of the MC issues ... not very much light situations require or profit by MC and you may think what is it good for if it doesn't make a difference? If you want to make it stand out you have to create a situation where secondary light takes over the main part.

very nice, and i found a way for saving some bits in the light structure, so both - dyn fog and vol light - should be possible.
just need 2 values for the normals and only the sign from the 3rd, the amount can be back calculated by sqrt(1 - n0*n0 - n1*n1)
