|Scene lighting example - From simple daylight to complex artificial light|
From default sunlight to complex artificial light In 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 Level This 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!
