Join Donovan Keith for an in-depth discussion in this video Rendering reflective objects on a light background, part of Cinema 4D: Studio Lighting.
In this video we will light a reflective object on a light colored background.…We're going to be shooting for an…end result that looks something like this image.…There's a good variation in tone on the diffuse parts of our graphics tablet.…And a spike of reflection in one area but it doesn't overwhelm the image.…Here's our starting point scene.…We've got our graphics table on a seamless backdrop.…Let's go ahead and give it a render and…see what we come up with.…Well, for one it seems like our object is…floating, so let's go head and bring in a light.…
I'm going to go to File, Merge Objects, and bring in my Softbox.…And choose Open.…And now I'm going to turn on my interactive window region,…so, I can get a sense of what this looks like.…The object is now better grounded, but I'm noticing a couple of nasty reflections.…One is this bright highlight on the front edge of our surface from our soft box.…But the more troubling to me, is this purple reflection…that seems to be covering the entire top of our surface.…
