The Atmospherics Render Element stores only atmospheric or volumetric participating media such as fog . This render element can then be used to enhance or color-correct just the atmospheric component of the image during the compositing process.

The Atmosphere Render Element is useful for changing the appearance of the atmosphere and volumetric effects in a rendered image using compositing or image editing software. Below is an example of its use.
