Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a fill light, part of Creating Flying Logos with After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite.
- I've set up the key light so that the logo looks…pretty good from this particular angle or perspective.…But if I press three and start orbiting…around my logo, I'll see that parts of it…are in complete darkness, which isn't so useful…if I'm going to animate the camera around this.…I need to fill out some of these areas…which are not getting hit by the key light.…For that, we just need to add a second light…known as a fill light.…Go ahead and re-center this a little bit better…in my view and we'll orbit around it…as we need to.…
So I'll go back to my light tool,…click on the tool, add another target light,…and name this one fill light.…You see that it defaults to the same position…very close, and there's the little extra…hot spot that it adds.…Now typically, fill lights are dimmer than key lights.…A good starting point is somewhere…between 25 to 50%, so I'll select fill light,…go to my attributes panel, go to the general tab,…and preset the intensity to say, 50 to begin with.…
I'm going to go to my main perspective view…
