Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the exposure controls, part of SketchUp Rendering: Using V-Ray 2.
- [Voiceover] In the real world…photographers use exposure, at its most basic level,…to control the brightness of the images that they shoot,…and so, hopefully create images that,…at the very least, look technically correct.…Going beyond that, of course, they also use exposure…as a tool to help produce an emotional response…from anyone viewing their images.…And although we will, in this video,…be looking at the controls, or the technical side…of exposure in VRay, it is good to keep in mind,…that these same controls can help us shape…the final aesthetics of our rendered images.…
In chapter two of this course,…we looked at how the VRay sun and sky combine in sketch up…to create a physically accurate daylight simulation.…These tools have been designed…to create the same level of illumination,…the same virtual energy output…as the actual sun and sky.…They are then, to put it in simplistic terms, very bright.…In fact, if we were to render a sun and sky,…set up in VRay, without the use of exposure,…what we would get is image that essentially looked like…
