Example text

As a lighting artist, you will learn to have a love/hate relationship with radiosity. On one hand, it adds a realism to MAX’s renders that no other tool can match. On the other hand, the render times can become galactic very quickly, sometimes making radiosity impractical. We will spend some time later on discussing how best to fake radiosity and when it is best to use the real deal. A Note about Proportion and Scale These light sources have all been described according to their normal world scale, that is, as though you were the viewer standing there, looking at them.

Direct sunlight may strike a wall or the ground, picking up the color of that wall or ground and reflecting it onto another surface. (Don’t get all nitpicky about the actual physics of light reflection and radiosity yet. ) Sunlight may reflect off the surface of a swimming pool, creating a hard reflection against the pool house. In each circumstance, the sun is the light source. All the other lighting events, with the exception of artificial light, are diffusions or reflections of that primary source.

It is important to understand not how the eye works, but what light is actually there and what situations create the lighting quality known as contrast so that these can be accurately recreated (or at least butchered, cheated, and faked) in a CG environment. 14 · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · Properties of Light Movement Movement may not be the first thing you consider when you think about light, but it is a powerful tool. Movement refers to the qualities of light that change over time.
