Chapter 1 - Sunny Afternoon
In this first instalment we create a sunny afternoon lighting scenario for a ship's cabin.
Chapter 2 - Twilight
In this second chapter we use mental ray for Maya for this challenging interior illumination, so all you need for this is to get your CPU at operating temperature and the basic Maya scene of our ship's interior (download can be found inside this tutorial - simply click on the Free Resources logo).
Chapter 3 - Moonlight
In this third part of the series for Autodesk Maya we discuss a very interesting lighting situation: natural moonlight.
Chapter 4 - Electrical
Following on from our last tutorial on natural moonlight, we discuss a very "CGI-traditional” style of illumination in this instalment: electrical lighting. Although this kind of light is considered "artificial”, we will learn later on that it has a very natural background (as long as we stay with a tungsten light, which we propose to do in this tutorial).
Chapter 5 - Candlelight
In the fifth part of the series we discuss the behaviour of electric light bulbs.
Chapter 6 - Underwater
In this final chapter our ship has sunk and the ship's body is below the waterline and filled with seawater. To believably illustrate this situation is the challenge for this instalment. We create eerie, or unfamiliar, uncommon lighting to support the feeling of being in a different world.
