Rendering Tip - Test Your Lighting Design

An easy way to test the lighting design for your project is to set the Color Rendering Mode to Clay


Render your model as Clay to test your lighting design. The completed rendering is a full color image, notice for example, that the spot lights are a different color than the ceiling lights. This Color Rendering Mode is a nice way to focus on lighting to ensure that the style and positioning of fixtures matches your vision for the project.

Once you're satisfied with your design, reset the Color Rendering Mode to Normal and process your presentation renderings.
