Default Creating Moonlight


I have this scene below and I am trying to create the effect of moonlight coming in through the window, and dancing shadows on the floor.

What is the best way to do that?

Use some lightfog on a spotlight to create the effect of light streaming in through the window. As far as color, use a slight grey.....just go a tiny tad into the "blue country" in your color chooser

Make sure you have shadows turned on for the light and you may have to scale the cone of the light in order to get the "moonlight" to pour into the room. I use the cloud texture for the lightfogs' color by the way

Convulsing my frame and cracking my bones
Hell's dragons of steel who roar in their chains
Crawl into my caves to suck out my veins.....
