Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Lighting updates, part of V-Ray 3.0 for 3ds Max Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Having spent some time…in this update chapter looking at maps and materials,…let's change tack a little now…and take a look instead at a couple of tweaks…to lights that we have been given as well.…Firstly though let's come to the tools menu,…open up the light explorer window…and then turn on the dome light that we have…sitting in the scene so that we can go ahead…and take an initial render,…which we will want to save to our history list…so that we can make a quick comparison…in just a minute or two.…Because with our light still selected,…if we just jump into the modify tab in the command panel…we can see in the options roll out that we now have…these diffuse and specular spinners…that can give us finer control over how…a specific light is working.…
Of course the ability to choose to have a light…not effect either the diffuse or specular component…of materials in the scene has been around for a long time,…but with the introduction of these…contribution level spinners, it no longer needs to be…an all or nothing choice.…
