Archive for Lights
It’s been awfully cloudy and dark last week around here but I got all the Sun I needed… in Blender at least! My client asked for a quick sun study on his project and I remembered looking at a cool add-on sometime ago. It’s called Sun Position, just download and add it to your addons list.
This is what finally happened to the dusk image, I tried to address part of the things pointed out in your comments, like I added an area light with a weird color trying to fake the light reflected from the water, and moved camera and trees a bit to give more depth to the image by having something in the foreground. Thank you very much for the input! I don’t have much time unfortunately so I stopped trying to make this perfect (especially as the scene is very slow now), maybe will try some other light conditions and angles when I get to it.
I haven’t upgraded my computer yet but having a bit of time on my hands I was tempted again to test Cycles.
The new BETA official 2.61 release shows a friendlier Cycles but I’m still a bit confused with material and even light settings.
My own kitchen has seen a great deal of blending this year in the form of creamy soups or fruit puree but now I have put it into my computer Blender. I’m trying to decide on some extra shelving that we’ll probably get from Ikea.
These days I’m busy with a set of presentation renderings for elevator interiors. More like product presentation than archviz but a good work&blending opportunity.
I was a bit worried about managing this in Blender internal because I have never tried this kind of close-up detailed shiny image.
