Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Rendering global illumination and IBL, part of 3ds Max: Advanced Lighting (2017).
- [Instructor] Let's go a little bit deeper into the nuts…and bolts of Global Illumination…and how it interacts with Image-Based Lighting.…For any shot like this there are basically four components…to the Global Illumination.…The first is the Diffuse Reflections.…Whenever you have Final Gathering…or Indirect Illumination Enabled…you're going to get light bouncing off of surfaces.…As long as you've got some direct light,…in this case coming from the sun,…you're going to get light bouncing around in the scene…so you're always getting Diffuse Reflections.…
The next component is the Background image…and it always Renders if the Environment is Enabled.…So if you go into our Rendering and Environment,…as long as this switch is on…then we will get something Rendering in the Viewport…and in the final production Render.…But that image does not block the alpha of the shot.…In other words, we have transparency here in this area…so if wanted to we could replace…that image in post-production.…
However, even though that alpha is transparent…
