This page provides information about the V-Ray Atmospheric Effects render element in Cinema 4D.


The Atmosphere Render Element stores only atmospheric or volumetric participating media such as Environment Fog or Aerial Perspective. This render element can then be used to enhance or color-correct just the atmospheric component of the image during the compositing process.

When atmospheric effects or fog are included in a scene, they render into the Beauty|RGB channel and should also be output as the VRayAtmosphere channel for compositing use.
