Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Advanced lighting, part of Learning Vectorworks (2014).
…Adding simple lights with direction and…intensity immediately helps the look of your render, but…lighting can play an important part in your overall design as well.…I'm not just talking about light fixtures, but…also factoring in environmental concerns like the sun.…In this exercise,…I've added a point light inside my house to simulate a light fixture in a room.…This can give me an idea if I need to add more interior lights to…highlight a space or…an architectural detail, as well as what color light would be best for the space.…For example, I may want to adjust the light to a warmer shade like so.…
Another factor in design is the placement of the sun throughout the day.…To this end we can add a heliodon.…I'm going to switch to Open GL so…I can see the effects in more real time as the sun passes throughout the day.…I'm going to place my heliodon here and click and…then put into the settings dialogue box.…Location is very important in relationship to the sun.…I'm going to change the city here, to Baltimore, and click OK.…
