In this video, learn how to add spotlights and point lights to the scene to illuminate the scene and add shadows.
- [Speaker] Now let's add some lights … to our scene. … Before we actually add lights, I'm going to do … a little bit of housekeeping here. … I'm going to go over to my properties panel, … and under context renderer, I'm going to change … the render engine. … Now up until now, we've been using what's called … the EV renderer, and that's a fairly fast renderer, … and it's great for modeling and interaction, … but we're going to get down to actually doing … final rendering. … So I'm going to change my renderer to cycles. … And that will give us a much more accurate view … of our final render. … Now when we select cycles, we can also change … the device. … Now I'm using my CPU, but you can also use … a graphics card or a GPU if you want. … Now with our renderer in place, we can now … start to add lights. … Now this is very similar to cameras in that … I really want to be in a quad-view, so I … can adjust the lights while looking through the camera. … So I'm going to go into view, … area, toggle quad view. …
