Retrofitted the nebula effect for smoke....
show user profile  HANZZ
Found a way to get a pseudo-volumetric dust/cloud render effect retrofitting my prior nebula approach.

First is this...default light, nothing else. Rendertime: 1:51

Next I added a direct spotlight, with raytraced shadows. Rendertime: 37:19
Other methods to emulate 'lighting' could be done. It shows promise. I'll keep fiddling with it.

That looks great. Does it animate?

I was playing around with smoke a while back. Blender now has GPU smoke. Not too bad for a few seconds per frame.

I'm artistically ecstatic about GPU-based rendering help in offline rendering systems. It's about damned time, honestly.
