Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding and adjusting lighting, part of AutoCAD: Rendering.
- So, lighting is always the coolest part,…sometimes the trickiest,…but always the coolest.…The objective of this video is to add a light to a model.…We will then adjust the light to be pointing up at a wall.…Then we're going to make some adjustments…to the light to make a cool effect.…So to get started, let's go into AutoCAD, of course.…I'm going to open up my archway drawing.…The first thing I'd like to do is go to a plan view.…To do that, I'm going to go over to my ViewCube,…and I'm going to click on the little TOP button right here.…It's not really a button,…but you see when you hover over it,…you get a little blue square.…
Once you see the blue square, click it.…I like to adjust it so North is facing up.…What we can do is click on this little arrow right here,…and click on it again, it's going to rotate us North.…Let's add a light.…To do that, let's go to the Visualize tab.…Under the Lights panel,…we'll see that we can create a light.…So go ahead and click on Create Light.…I'm going to go with a Spot light.…
