Well, here we are at the end of SketchUp Rendering Using Twilight. Of course there's still plenty that you can do to continue building your Twilight rendering skills. One excellent option is to simply practice the things you have learned throughout the duration of this course. If you have access to the exercise files, the scene files provided, so much the better. Do be sure also to give attention to the many photography courses available here on lynda.com. Be especially sure to check out the Foundations of Photography series by Ben Long.
Of course you will then need to apply the principles of photography from those courses to working with the Twilight render engine. You can even check out any of the 3D titles here on lynda.com that feature render engine training, such as our SketchUp rendering with V-Ray course. Many of the principles, the ideas used in other render engines can fairly easily be transferred over to use in Twilight. Finally, you will also want to check out the resources available on the twilightrender.com website. I certainly hope that you've found this course helpful and informative in your endeavors to learn the Twilight render engine.
My name is Brian Bradley, and I will say take care and bye for now.
