Night ligthing tips?

Someone have few tips to light a night scene using Max 6?

You've to use a cinema technique. Light your scene as in a sunny day. Play with high contrast. A burning white main light, and a dark blue "return" light. Study some film taken photogrphas to understand the way to get a night aspect. Because it's just an aspect... Let take a photographs by night, it would give nothing nice.

Have a look at this thread I wanted to transform a common photo into a night render.

Hope it helps (reply)

J'ignorais qu'on fonctionnait de cette façon au cinéma...
Bonne idée! Je fais quelques tests dès que j'ai quelques heures et je posterai ma recette si elle s'avère bonne.
