Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Interior artificial light in ART, part of 3ds Max: Advanced Lighting (2017).
- [Narrator] Let's see what our room looks like at night…with some artificial lighting.…We'll create a lamp light, a room light, and a spot.…We'll start with the lamp.…It's a floor lamp here.…We can get in close in the top view…and create the light.…Go to the create panel, lights, free light.…We get a dialog asking if we want…Physical Camera Exposure Control.…Yes we do, so we'll choose yes…and then click to create that light.…Grab the Move tool and move it up…in one of the orthographic views.…
Now it's inside that lamp.…We can zoom in there.…Cool.…Tumble around, double check,…make sure it's the way we want.…With it still selected, go over to the Modify panel,…rename it Lamp Light.…It's got the light distribution type of uniform spherical,…and that is what we want.…Let's emit from a sphere as well so we'll get soft shadows.…Under Shape/Area Shadows choose Sphere…and give it a radius…of 0.05 meters,…so it's five centimeters in radius.…
In dolly forward in the views,…we can see there is now a sphere surrounding that light…
