Create illuminated fog


You create illuminated fog by adding it to an existing light.


To create fog that fills the entire scene, not just within the illumination of a specific light, use the Environment Fog Volumetric material. See Environment Fog.

To add illuminated fog to a light

  1. Select the light for which you want to illuminate fog.
  2. In the Light Effects section of the light’s Attribute Editor, click the map button beside the Light Fog attribute.

    Maya automatically creates a light fog node, connects it to the light node, and displays its Attribute Editor.
