Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing a 3D model with lights, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with 3D Objects.
- The use of 3D lights can dramatically change…the appearance of the scene.…Let's modify this scene making it a bit more dramatic…by using the existing lights and perhaps adding some more.…We can then also change the final render quality…to really utilize those lights for the highest quality.…Looking at my scene here,…I could tell that we've got a couple of different lights,…let's turn them off.…First up, we have our Fill_light…and this is creating the overall light of the environment.…
If we double click and open that up,…you see it's a Parallel light…and it's creating a scene.…We can adjust the intensity of that light…to add more or less.…I'm gonna actually take it down a bit…so it gets a little darker…and click OK.…Then add an ambient light…so we have a little bit of base lighting.…Let's set the ambient light…to pick up this yellowish tone…and we'll change the style to Ambient…and click OK.…
You see that that creates a bit of a…yellowish glow to the scene.…I'll click on that light,…press the return key…and rename it Ambient.…
