Lighting the scene

Lighting is a very important element in real-world studio scenes as well as 3D scenes. A good animation can be ruined by not having proper lightning. So let's add our first light. Go up to Lights > Area Light. And Area Lights are the more accurate realistic-looking lights. They take longer to render, but I think they also look the best. So this will be our main light. Let's rename it Main. Let's go the Details and give it a falloff so the light actually acts as it would in real life-- it actually trails off as objects are further away from the light.

So let's just hit Render. That's looking pretty good so far. Let's actually change the Intensity to 55. So we're actually we're going to add other lights that will help fill out the lighting in the scene. So let's create our second light, and this will be a Spot light. And we're just going to zoom out, and we're going to position this light at the bottom right. It's going to be more of an accent...
