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 V-Ray Atmosphere rollout of the Add Item dropdown menu.

Atmospheric Effects

The atmospheric effects provided by V-Ray are:

  • Aerial Perspective - Produces the aerial perspective effect, which simulates viewing objects from a distance through the Earth's atmosphere. The effect is similar to fog or haze.
  • Environment Fog - An atmospheric effect that simulates participating media like fog and atmospheric dust.
  • V-Ray Toon - VRayToon is a very simple atmospheric plugin that produces cartoon-style outlines on specific objects in the scene.
