well, mine doesn't even look similar to the original one.

How can i create the same kind of lighting effect. I created a spotlight and applied lightfog.

I need the light to have more rays. Any Help ?

You need a harder/brighter back light.

I got an idea for you, might work. If you have a good render of the logo with alpha you might want to connect it to the color channel of the spot light. This may help out.

Thnx all for ur suggestions.

This is what i got after tuning auto focus in the shadows of the spot light.

If i increase the intensity of the backlight the rays are getting grainy. 'll provide the render of this later

if you increase the intensity of the light, try changing the density of the fog to get the effect you want.

Not to mention looks like you have the fog color set to a blue. Set it to white with only a tinge of blue. The black background will do the rest.
