I don't have an extensive knowledge of lighting and rendering in Maya, more well acquainted with modeling.
I need to replicate this scene:
I have all the models, but need to create the lights, reflections - photo-realism basically - of the above render, and I honestly don't know where to start! I've been playing with Mental Ray and Global Illumination, but I haven't found any good tutorials on an indoor scene like this out there.
What do you recommend?
