UberEnvironment Light Tutorial

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 1034 / System Requirements: Any computer with software that can read swf files

The secret to good lighting. This tutorial will explain how to use Daz's Uberenvironment Lights. I have tried to explain how to use this lighting with this tutorial and when you learn this you should not be afraid to add more spotlights and distant lights. The teeth here are a bit dark and I later added an extra spotlight with specular light and the render looked even better so never be afraid to experiment.

The color, the intensities, and the sheer crispness of the render will make you go gaga over it too.
