Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding lighting and reflective surfaces, part of Vehicle Modeling in Blender.
- Now that we have the scene set up,…let's go ahead and add some materials…as well as some lighting so that we can see those materials.…So the first thing that I want to do…is we're going to render using the Cycles renderer…and then when we do that, we can turn on…Rendered mode and it should come in.…Now if you have a GPU,…one of the first things you want to do…is go over to this render tab and turn on GPU Compute device…because it will render a whole lot faster.…Now you can see that we don't really have a lot of light…in the scene, so I need to add in some additional lighting.…
So we're going to create a very simple light model.…We're not going to get too fancy with this.…I just want to see how this car renders.…So we're going to create a Sun object.…Now you can see as soon as we do that, we get a shadow.…Now the Sun object itself is basically…just a simple light, here, and if we want…we can change the direction.…So it basically comes from all directions.…It doesn't matter where you put it in the scene,…but I am going to just adjust it so that…
