Using the Omni Light

When rendering with V-Ray in SketchUp, especially if we are producing visualization pieces, there is a very high likelihood that we will need to create, or maybe recreate, artificial light sources for our scenes. V-Ray gives those four light types that can be used to cover up pretty much any such situation that may arise. If we come up to our V-Ray toolbar, we can by means of the tooltips actually examine the light types available tools. So you can see we have an Omni Light, a Rectangle Light, a Spot Light, and an IES Light.

Over the next four videos in this chapter, we're going to briefly look at each of these light types and of course examine the parameters that control them. Creating our light objects is a very simple matter indeed. All we need to do is left-mouse-click on the desired icon, find a spot in the scene that we want to place our light object, and then again simply left-mouse-click to put it into our scene. Now that process holds for each of the light types ...
