Volumetric Fogging

Volumetric fogging, or volumetric fog, encompasses a given fogging effect only within a 3D area ? essentially a 3D polygon bounding zone. Enter the zone, such that your viewpoint is inside it, and you are immersed in the fog. Step out, and suddenly it is clear as day.

This implementation of fog, when used alone, creates hard edges to foggy areas, which are often undesirable.

Some implementations allow you to still see the fog when outside the zone, others only add the fog to the view when you are inside the zone ? not when you are looking through it to an area beyond.
