Halos are light areas around light sources, used to give the impression of small dust particles in the air.

A Light with a separate Halo Component


Halos use the Halo Texture set up in the Render Settings. If none is assigned, it uses a default one. A Light component can be setup to automatically show halo, without a separate Halo component.
