Summary

This chapter introduced you to radiosity and caustics and provided you with a number of practical, real-world examples. You’ve seen radiosity applied with individual lights, and you’ve used it to create dynamic interior lighting environments. These techniques can be taken further with the use of HDR images.

You also learned about caustics and saw how applying them can add realism to your scenes. With area lights, and additional LightWave tools such as the Image World and baking technology, your images can look amazingly real. Just imagine what you can do with more experimentation and practice! Before you send your computer off to render-render land, move on to Chapter 10 and learn how to build the best human head around.
