Today we would like to show you in a short video how to put the finishing touches to your planning by using different light settings.
Therefore, we exemplarily created three renderings of one planning scene, which are identical, except for the settings for light export and ambient occlusion color.
We used the profile Photo – High and deactivated the export of light to create the first picture. This means, that none of the light sources within the planning was taken into account in the rendering process. The value of the ambient occlusion color remained unchanged. Consequently, the result seems to be rather gloomy and dark to the viewer. The lighting here is comparable to a room at the time of twilight in which one realizes that the time has come to turn on the light. Ambient occlusion influences the global illumination of a room in respect of color and brightness by simulating the dispersion of natural light. Hence, this figure primarily determines the lighting atmosphere. As the first picture turned out to dark, we lightened the ambient occlusion color in the second rendering.
In the third example, we shed light on the room by assembling point light and spot light sources. To achieve an optimal result it is important to enable the lighting sources and the light export. The outcome is an atmospheric illuminated room as it can be seen in the third rendering.
