Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing 3D lights, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with 3D Objects.
- When you add a 3D model,…it may likely come in with it's own lights.…Those lights can be adjusted…or you can add new lights to a scene.…Lights, just like a studio…or the outdoors,…will bring something to life.…Without light,…an object appears flat.…Light is going to add reflection…as well as shadow.…Let's take a look here at the 3D panel.…You'll notice that the last category is Lights.…So if I choose this,…I can see the light that's applied.…Currently, we have an Infinite Light.…
The controller here…allows you to adjust…where that light is coming from.…So notice, just like the scene…where the lights seem to be going…across the grass,…I can position that light…so that there's a shadow…on the backside of the soccer ball.…As well as a shadow cast onto the ground.…Now, if I click off of that,…you can see the entire environment…and get an idea of what…that light actually looks like.…In this case, it kind of reminds me…of stadium lighting…and you'll see that it's using…an image based light…of several different lights…coming from a sphere.…
