An approach to interior lighting
Learn the best way to set up all the necessary lights in your scene, how to create a realistic lighting balance and all the tricks to speed up rendering.
Vray skylight vs. window lights
We'll show you different techniques to get exterior sky- and sunlight into the interior. We'll also discuss the pro's and cons of each method, and how to adjust several important Vray settings to get a clean image.
Direct light vs. Global Illumination
Global illumination is very important in interior scenes, affecting rendertimes and shadow quality a lot. We'll discuss various ways to reduce the amount of GI light, and how to get the GI solution as clean as possible.
Scene & material optimizations
The first part of the tutorial will go over several steps to create a very clean, noise free image. This requires optimizations in both lighting and materials! We'll always discuss the effect on render times, and several ways to speed things up.
Quickly change lighting schemes
The second part of the tutorial will focus more on switching from one lighting setup to another. We'll use a different scene and create a daylight setup, add a V-Ray sun to it and finally convert it to a night scene.
