Unhappy Light Beam Effect

Hey guys,

I am working on a short film at the moment and there are some scenes where the hole scene should have some of these light beams shining through the trees. And I'm wondering now how to do it. But notice, it has to be in 3D because there are also tracking shots in the scene. So can't be solved with light rays in after effects.



I thought of doing this in Maya. Remodel the important parts of the scene and than using a volumetric light to generate the light rays.

Is this a way to do it? Or have you other suggestions to create this effect?
Please help me out!

Thank you,
Marcel

CC Light Burst in After Effects will get you that kind of look and render fairly fast. IT is a fake, however and it not true 3D.

Yeah, that's it. I need it to stay in 3d space. so nothing inside after effects will work :/
