Custom Render - Lighting Options Chart

Recommended Posts

Hello Rendering aficionados.

 

A couple of years ago I prepared my own chart to understand better the possible results obtained when combining different indirect light bounces, ambient on/off and emitter values. 

Hope this helps you all to get better renderings.

That's a nice illustration Luis.

 

What do you mean by "image exposure" ?

Not the Exposure Setting in Cameras ?

 

I miss such a setting for camera-less renders.

I created this one back in v2015, I believe that setting was there. This is before rendering styles.

Thanks Luis

 

What are you lighting the scene with?

 

I can see a background sky so I am also assuming a heliodon?

Thought I was using Render Styles since 2014.

No more 2015 installed here at the moment.

 

Was that setting in "Set Lighting Options" ?

The rays are parallel, so it's either a Directional light or a Heliodon which functionally should be the same. I am fairly certain the column of images on the right was made later on and used Camera Exposure.

Ah,

It was on the first Tab of a Render Style and went away with VW 2016.

I miss it already.
