Interior Daylight

One of the great things about using radiosity is that it makes your job a lot easier when you are simulating indoor lighting. Wherever you are—at home, at work, in the car—the light from sources around you bounces off everything. In the daytime, the light shining through your window can easily light up the entire room. To simulate this in a 3D environment requires a lot of lights, which are cleverly diffused and set up to light all the areas in your 3D environment. A scene with radiosity not only makes your project look more real, but also saves you the headache of setting up multiple lights.

The lighting you choose to create in your 3D animations does more than simply light your scene. It also creates a mood. Mood lighting is used in films; it’s that soft, hazy light shining through a café window in the morning. This light is warm and creates a mood that otherwise would be hard to produce. This next exercise guides you through creating a mood in a 3D environment using radiosity and volumetrics.
