We've all seen fabulous photos like this one where you can see the sunlight streaming through a window. Did you ever wonder if that effect could be duplicated in an 3D image? In searching for that picture, all that came up were actually photos.
But then I found this tutorial! Streaming Light
It was created for Bryce, but I'm sure something similar could be achieved in any program that uses lights that you can place yourself.
So, fellow 3D artists, go out there and create something new! We can't let the photogs have all the fun!
