well, i''d like to ''hitchhike'' a question: how are volumetric effects actually created in theory? are volumetric fogs and lights handled the same way?

it is in vs 2.0(can be software) so it may run on much hardware(re-compile)

volumetric lights are a complicated effect, it''s not like you can do d3d->VolumetricLightsPlease();

Just use your brain, and you will figure out how it works..
hint: the most common technique uses the destination alpha channel to store and process Z values.
