In this tutorial you will learn basic lighting in C4D. No matter if you are an intermediate user or an absolute beginner, there is something to be learned here about the many lighting & shadow options and control toggles within Cinema 4D.
One of the most critical elements involved in creating realistically lit interior environments is exposure control. In this tutorial you will be introduced to using the linear workflow for gamma correct lighting in Cinema 4D, allowing you produce more photorealistic renders, as well as improve specular highlights and anti-aliasing.
Caustics are formed by light being reflected or transmitted by a number of specular (shiny) surfaces before interacting with a diffuse (light scattering) surface. The light cast onto a dining table by a wine glass is one of the most common examples of caustics.
