Alain just mentioned media -and his opening comment makes me think I'm
assuming the billboards position incorrectly...
With media - where we almost always use contained media these days - we
sometimes forget we can still implement global media.
It might be worth a try in your case. As long as the billboards have
enough depth POV-Ray can track whether inside or outside the billboards,
but not a depth appreciable enough(a) to greatly affect the media
results - I think it might work.
(a) Try to stick with more perpendicular billboards with respect to the
initial camera rays.
You'll need a complete scene backstop shape at "media fog" end effect
distance. In other words, you cannot have only 'background' or a
'skysphere', global media needs rays which eventually terminate
somewhere with a final intersection.
