Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Lighting, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…Lighting is another element that can dramatically alter the look of…your renderings.…Controlling the lighting in your environment to get the effect you…want can be a little difficult, but…with some practice, your renders will benefit from proper lighting.…First, we'll go to the Lighting tool palette.…Now select the General Light tool.…We can see a number of modes here including directional, point,…and spotlight.…First, I'm going to enable the fast Renderworks engine so…that I can see the effect the light has on my drawing.…I'm going to make sure I'm using a directional light and click and…place the light here.…
In the initial dialogue box, I'm going to leave most of the settings as default, but…I am going to change the brightness down to 50%.…And click OK.…Immediately, we can see the effect that a lighting has on the models.…We see shadows and reflections.…Looking at the object properties of the light, we can see all the variables we…can change, including color, and see how they affect our drawing.…We could also simply turn the light off.…
