Thanks alot Henry Im really enjoying the process and appreciate your input, I'm not great with the lighting yet.There is alot I have to figure out about that. BTW do you know how to have light come through glass? I want the outside light to shine through the blinds on my windows. Thanks
To make a light shine through glass, the light source must be an object to which you have assigned a Luminance
, and whose Luminance Properties must be properly set. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get soft shadows from illumination through glass, and you might want to consider removing the glass and leaving an empty hole instead. That way, you can use standard lights and easily achieve soft shadows.
I've attached a simple Deluxe drawing that does use Luminance. It's assigned to the small yellow sphere. Look carefully at its Luminance Properties, including the checkmark in the "Load to render luminance only" box.
