maya window lighting


I have created a scene with windows in and i want that effect in photos where it blows out the highlights of the windows so it looks like bright sun outside and you can't see anything but white. How could i achieve this effect?

You put a really strong light outside the window, just like in the real world.
then you add some glow in post.

I would also do this in post by creating a bloom effect. Neil has a pretty good starter tut here_

You could also create an arealight and place it just a tiny bit inside the house at the window and then have it point outwards, so that it will hit the windowframe and look like glow.
This method is probably a bit deprecated though and from the days before GI, but it should still work fine
