Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying environment fog, part of 3ds Max: Advanced Lighting (2017).
- [Narrator] For a convincing rendering…of exterior daylight, in which we can see…off into the distance, we should account…for atmospheric perspective and any haze or fog…that may be in the air.…Currently, we have none of that.…Previously, we used mental ray, physical sky,…and mental ray skylight.…And those included some basic settings…for atmospheric perspective and haze.…But they were limited.…We didn't have the ability to change the color, for example.…
In situations such as this, in which we've…got image-based lighting and no haze parameter to play with,…or if we're using mental ray and we want more control,…then we can add environment fog to the scene.…First, let's do a little bit of housekeeping.…When we assigned a multiply node…as our environment background, it turned white here,…in the View, and there's nothing we can do about that,…except to turn it off.…Go into the View's menu, Viewport Background,…and set it to Solid Color.…
And to get a better sense of our final rendered shot,…let's go back to scene lighting.…
