Join Ellery Connell for an in-depth discussion in this video Direct illumination, part of Learning MODO 601.
In this video we'll have a look at the basic types of lights that are available …in MODO, and how they work and some of the options to make them look better. …So, the first one that we'll look at here is the basic light that comes turned on …by default when you start a scene in MODO and that is a directional light. …directional light is something kind of a kin to sunlight. …It doesn't come from a particular point in space, you can see the actual light …here, highlighted in orange, and if I move this light around, it's actually not …going to effect my lighting at all. It will force my Preview Render to start …re-drawing, but it's not going to change anything.…
All that matters with the directional light is the angle that it's coming from, so. …If I take it and rotate it so it's coming from a lower angle, you can see that …that's going to change my lighting, but the actual position of the light really …is irrelevant. So, that's the most basic style of lighting. …There are some things you can do to make it look a little bit better, but we'll …
