Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video V-Ray IES Light, part of SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2.
- For architectural visualization work,…particularly interiors, V-Ray IES light type offers…an extremely powerful and easy to use method…for adding real world lighting data to our scenes.…As we have with our previous light types then,…let's go ahead and add an IES light to the scene…by coming to the Lights toolbar,…clicking to the select the IES option,…and then left-clicking in the scene.…As with the spotlight that we looked at earlier,…I do want to have this light object sitting…fairly close to our wall here.…
I also want it sitting quite a way off the ground…so that we can clearly see the emission patterns…that we're going to be getting from it.…So let's grab the move tool…and pull it up quite a way in our scene.…With that done, let's go ahead and take a test render.…What we get using both the light's defaults…and our current scene setup is, well,…(laughs) nothing at all really,…which isn't surprising seeing as the IES light…hasn't really been designed to function…as a stand-alone light in quite the same way…
