Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video VRayLightSelect, part of 3ds Max: Rendering for Compositing in V-Ray Next.
- [Instructor] Having already worked with V-Ray's scene … wide lighting elements, so lighting and global illumination, … which obviously capture all direct and indirect … lighting in a scene, irrespective of the total number … of lights being used, what we want to do in this exercise … is take a look at how we could, if needed, … control those same aspects of illumination on a per light, … rather than global basis. … If we take a look at the V-Ray Light Lister then, … you can see that in our scene, … we currently have three V-Ray lights, … one key and two instanced window lights. … These being set at different intensities, … but all still using the same default white … as their color component. … What then if in a comp we wanted to change both intensity … and color for each of the lights separately, … and in an almost instantaneous fashion. … Well, when using the V-Ray Light Select element, … so long as we are prepared to take just a little bit of time … to perform the required setup, we can do just that. …
