Enough physical RAM for all your simultaneous programs, and enough user memory for one single program, really are separate things. Solving one will not solve the other. This tutorial leads the way for those who experience out-of-memory problems when rendering 3D, video or music in a 32-bit environment.

Scene lighting example - From simple daylight to complex artificial light

Skill Level: Intermediate / Views: 479 / System Requirements: Vue 3D. Tutorial was made in Vue 7 Infinite

From default sunlight to complex artificial lightIn this short PDF tutorial, the idea is to start with a complex but typical 3D daylight scene, which has a lighting scheme like Vue 7 Infinite's default. That is, a "Spectral" atmosphere with just one light source - the midday sun.In 3 steps, a series of lighting changes are discussed and the results are shown for this radiosity rendered scene. We end with a lighting scheme of 14 light sources.Skill LevelThis is not a step-by-step tutorial. It assumes intermediate level knowledge of Vue lighting. Lighting details are not included, only the lighting scheme concepts and the results of applying those.Enjoy!
