Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video V-Ray Spot Light, part of SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2.
- Having looked at using both the Omni and Rectangle Lights…in V-Ray for SketchUp, then, it's time to continue…our exploration of artificial light types…by taking a look at the Spotlight option.…Of course, the first thing we will need to do…is add a spotlight to the scene.…So let's, again, come to the Lights…toolbar, select the Spot Light button,…and then perform a simple left-click in the scene,…in order to complete the creation process.…Now, I do want to move the spot up…quite a ways in the scene here.…And then, also, before going ahead…and taking any test renders,…open up the light editor and switch…the spotlight's default Decay setting…from Linear to Inverse Square.…
Just so that we are matching up with…the light types that we have already looked at so far.…Again, then, because I have introduced…a new light object to the environment,…let's take a test render, in order to quickly…evaluate what sort of emission pattern…and illumination level we are getting from it.…Being a spotlight, of course, the look…we get from it is very unique,…
