That is probably smoke.
Hi everone, I am about to shoot a scene where many small shafts of light are supposed to become visible and I was wondering what is best to use? Smoke, haze or something completely different? I have worked alot with smoke in musicvideos, but I think that smoke is too textured, it's really obvious that it's smoke. I would like the lightrays to look like this shot from Minority Report.
The key is just to spread it out in the room, and let it settle a bit.

Let it settle and fan it around the room with a clip board or something.

I'd say the biggest reason why these rays are so pronounced is the units used outside the windows. They're seemingly larger units with either a fresnel lens or possibly no lens at all, getting the sharpest ray possible. The best haze I've ever seen is in Blade Runner. It's pure atmosphere, stylized yes, but it's not trying to be all that subtle about it.
