Sample text

Aimed toward the three-dimensional objects being illuminated, the purpose of the side light is to lighten some of the dark shadows and increase the perceived dimensionality of the three-dimensional object. [ 38 ] Chapter 2 The backlight, or rim light, is important because its purpose is to create a sharp highlight on the edges of our three-dimensional object, forcing it to pop away from the background. This lamp is placed behind our object, opposite our camera. For best results, we should find a happy medium between the three-dimensional object and our camera to aim this lamp.

The key light is positioned next to the camera, that is, at the same distance from the three-dimensional grid and slightly to either side. In most cases, as in ours, the key light is aimed in the direction of the three-dimensional object, or objects, being lit. Because the majority of the light that is used to light our tricycle will be coming from the sun, we can start constructing the 3-Point light rig with a sun lamp. 1. In Blender, add a Sun lamp by selecting Add | Lamp | Sun. °° Using either the G-hotkey or the Transform Widget, move the lamp so that it is just to the left of the camera.

A backlight helps distinguish the background from the foreground. Shadows Blender approaches shadows in two ways. The first is with raytracing. Raytraced shadows are mathematically correct, but they take longer to render. They're calculated by projecting rays of "light" from a light source and using the direction of those rays to create the shadow. The other type of shadow in Blender is called a buffer shadow. Buffer shadows are rendered much faster than raytraced shadows, but at the cost of quality and buffer memory.
