View Full Version : Lighting for character showreel

12 December 2010, 12:17 PM

I'm Lighting up my character for my showreel, but never quite been clear on the best method when there's some kind of animation involved.

I've made my own simple GI set up with a sky light and Floor Bounce light, which I feel works nicely(or maybe not if someone has a better idea) but not sure about the key lights.

I've set up a mental ray area light for the key light, but when the camera shoots from behind the character it's very shadowed, so I set-up another key light? But this can also affect the lighting from the front?

Thanks in advance
