In this video we'll be taking a look at the different lighting passes as well as…the GI pass coming out of VRay. These elements are set up through the…render settings, are found here is GI, here is lighting as well as some of the…raw settings if you want extra control. You'll be able to find the raw GI and the…raw light passes. We've already rendered, and of course, we…can see the GI and the raw GI are really quite different in composite.…
Using After Effects, we've brought in the diffuse pass, and of course, we've added…an exposure node to give us a gamma of 2.2.…We'll be adding a raw light on top by using a multiply.…This also has the exposure node for 2.2 gamma.…The raw light multiplies on top of the diffuse to give you the lighting pass.…So you can see here, they're pretty much similar, except for maybe some of these…mat lines. And you can see that the overall…luminance, the overall brightness of the renders, are the same once you multiply…the raw light over the diffuse. The GI adds on top of this result to give…
