Render again, still black The skylight is not a direct light source, it's not a real light that you can select in the viewports. Imagine it as an infinite big sphere surrounding your scene, casting light to the inside. This light is 'indirect' light, calculated by global illumination. So we need to enable GI for it to cast any light.
More info on GI can be found here. Adjust the settings like in the screenshot. As you can see, we use a multiplier of 0. If you never use too bright materials see previous step and use these GI multiplier setting, you will never get problems with your GI calculations.
Using pure white materials and full GI multipliers can confuse V-ray, so this is a simple trick but it does make a difference! Now if we render again, you will see the teapots. The skylight is an environment light, which means it casts light uniformly from all directions. This results in very soft shadowing and uniform lighting on all surfaces.
Adjusting the skylight In the environment rollout, change the multiplier next to the skylight color to 1. The scene brightens up, because the multiplier is used a the skylights 'strength' value.
Also try some different skylight colors to see the effect on the rendering. Add a 'sun' To make the lighting a bit more interesting, we will add a direct light to the scene.
I used a directional light with vrayshadows turned on. Make sure the light is bigger than your scene check screenshot to see the light settings and placement I used.
When you render, the scene is way to bright because now we have a skylight of 1. Together these 2 lights overexpose the scene Change the skylight multiplier to 0. Better already! Lighting color Change the directional light color to something yellowish, and the skylight to a bit more saturated blue.
This will add a subtle change to the coloring of the direct and indirect lighting. Try some combinations of more and less saturated colors for 'sun' and sky to find a satisfying result. The most common use of these is for creating spotlights with a natural falloff.
The lights are angled upwards and give nice shadowy detail to the boundary wall.
These are great for lighting outside vegetation as a decorative effect. After bringing the rendered image into Photoshop, I like to basic S-Curves adjustment to start with.
Add some Contrast and Levels adjustment too for making the image appealing. This helps in getting an idea of what pops out in the scene.
You can get creative by painting some white glow over the windows and blending them softly with the scene. This can make the windows themselves look a bit washed out. By using the burn tool over the windows, I can now retrieve the contrast to that area again. Similarly you can use the dodge tool to lighten certain areas that may be too dark.
The Easy Steps to Realistic Render. Oh, and adding a VRay infinite plane is a good idea for getting a proper horizon line. Adding Interior Lights Before we begin adding lights to our interior, we need to exclude our glass objects from the override material.
