Setting Up the Lighting

  • Software:Blender 2.75  ·
  • Difficulty:Advanced

To make the shot believable, lighting is essential. We have to match the lighting of our 3D objects to the real world as closely as possible and give them the same shading and shadows. The most professional way of doing this is using HDR lighting. In this case, we don’t have a HDR map of the environment so we will do a little educated guessing and keyframing.
