ArielVision Indirect Lighting
Indirect Lighting refers to the feature of processing light reflected from mirrors and other surfaces.
Indirect lighting, or lighting reflected from other surfaces, can add some subtlety and realism to your exterior rendering. In particular, the undersides of overhanging features such as eaves or balconies can be rendered more accurately when using indirect lighting.
This subtlety, however, comes at a performance cost. More passes will be required to resolve the image, and each pass will take longer.
- More realistic lighting effects.
- Subtle, soft shadows due to reflected lights.
- Better images for presentations.
In this example, the lights are placed above the suspended ceiling and reflected into the room from the main ceiling.
The lighting becomes smoother and smoother as more bounces are processed during each rendering pass.
