I'm a new guy when it comes to lighting automobiles with Mental Ray, and I want to make my model SUPER REALISTIC! I know of HDRI, reflection maps, global illumination, domes, ect.,....but I just don't know where to start!
What makes me really frustrated is that I see people everywhere online that have achieved this kind of REALISTIC lighting, yet they don't want to help others figure it out by themselves...which I understand for trade secret-wise. Is there anyone that could tell me how to start and what lighting set-up works best with cars?
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!
A million thanks, :wip:
