Join Dariush Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video The Dome light, part of Learning V-Ray for Maya: A Professional Reference Guide.
In this video we're going to take a look at the VRay dome light.…This scene we have a 60 meter oil rig, and the idea is to get an evenly lit…environment for its render. We'll go ahead into the Create Lights,…Dome Light. And you will see a little locator show up…for the dome light. It's attributes are similar to other VRay…dome lights, in that it has a color which can be set with temperature.…
Measured in Kelvin or with a simple color swatch, and it has an intensity multiplier.…This of course sets how bright the dome light becomes.…This gives you a hemisphere that fits over your object to give you a nice soft lighting.…We'll go ahead and take a look at our render now.…So with that dome light, we have a nice even shading all the way around.…
You'll notice a little bit of a white strip up here, let me show you what that is.…If we zoom out and we angle this way and we go ahead and render again, you're…going to see a lot more white. And that actually is the dome light being…visible in the render. So, first thing you should do is go ahead…
