Learn about changing the lighting and adding a reflection beneath the object.
- [Instructor] We've done our render preview.…Let's now adjust the lighting…to make the cereal box match the scene better.…We'll go onto the Environment,…and here we get all the environment properties.…Let's have a look at Sunlight.…We can increase the intensity to make it brighter.…You can see the shadow goes off behind the cereal box,…but the shadow of the toaster and the butter dish…are almost from directly above.…Let's adjust the height slider, pulling that up,…so that the shadow now comes from above as well.…
We can adjust the rotation to move the sun around.…Let's have it more from the front,…and we'll boost the intensity just a little more.…As we do so, the render preview shows us…how the image is going to look.…Let's have a look at the ground settings.…We'll scroll down and open the Ground Plane settings.…Because it's standing on a marble surface,…we want some reflection in here…to match the reflection of the tiles behind.…
Let's increase the opacity of the reflection,…and you'll see in the render preview, there it is.…
