This page introduces the Atmospheric and Environment effects for V-Ray for 3ds Max.
The Atmospheric and Environment effects in V-Ray simulate fog, atmospheric haze and participating media for a number of image effects. They also include VRayToon, a cartoon-styled non-photorealistic effect that enables toon shading as a render effect throughout the scene.
These effects are available under the Atmosphere rollout on the Effects dialog (Rendering menu > Effects).

Aerial Perspective Simulates the aerial perspective effect, the result of viewing objects from a distance through the Earth's atmosphere. The effect is similar to fog or haze.
Sphere Fade Gizmo Extracts and renders small parts of the scene by putting them in an atmospheric gizmo.
