did you try with some volumetric material ?

seen this before have to find sample file

happy cl

I tried. But when i take cube and add the material and control the above yellow image that effect it does not gives me.

Well, i got this…

Just fiddle with it… play, learn by trial & error… Effect mostly depends on the size of your object and the settings you set.

… and here’s also ‘your’ modified sponge scene

well, it’s not as easy as copy/paste & voila… magic is in everything relative, but not all relations are equal :wink:

for easier work in your case, you first need to apply scale to objects, then change texture scale, density, color and few other settings accordingly (including Volume step size)
