Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with irradiance mapping: Part 2, part of SketchUp Rendering Using V-Ray 2.
- Having already created a basic irradiance mapping solution…we are in this video going to work at refining what we have.…As you can see in the render, taken from where we left off…in the previous exercise, we currently have a fairly blunt…GI solution that really does not work as a final…production quality lighting setup.…The question then is: How do we go about improving things?…Well, one thing we could do with an interior setting…such as this is give our irradiance mapping engine…a bit of a helping hand by making use of some Sky portals.…Now a Sky portal is an operating mode…of the V-Ray rectangular light that provides us…with a mechanism for essentially pointing the GI engines…to areas of the scene from where direct light is coming.…
This in turn helps V-Ray make more intelligent decisions…regarding issues of irradiant samples.…From the Window menu then,…lets open up the Layers dialogue, and unhide…the Sky portal layer that we have there.…Now once we have added the rectangle lights…that we will be using and position them appropriately…
