Light and Shadow Tutorial
By Arndt von Koenigsmarck and Alberto Blasi
Is light always visible? Does light also exist without shadow? Can an object be illuminated without light? In this Chapter you will learn all you need to know about lighting a 3D scene effectively.
Shadows and (specular) highlights were already mentioned in the Material System tutorial - but neither of these can be used effectively without proper lighting. In this tutorial we will expound on light sources available in Cinema 4D. We will also demonstrate which techniques are the most effective for illuminating specific types of objects.
Different scene files are also made available with which you can practice illuminating different objects.
