If you're talking about using larger than 1 for transparency then it isn't
really possible to get a correct result, esp. not in every situation.  I
tried the script and with rgbt 1.6 for the box media container the plane is
approx. the same color as without media.  The fog becomes enhanced too
though.  If a filter value which matches that of the box is used in the fog
color then the original coloration appears.
