Hi Ramy,

The lights in in Qt3D are virtual lights, they light up objects in the
scene, but the lights themselves are not visible. To achieve what you are
describing, you need a more sophisticated rendering algorithm. You should
be able to do it in Qt3D, but not simply by using the built-in lights. A
good way to start is probably to google 'volumetric lighting'.

Happy hacking :)
