Probably the hardest thing for newfags to learn is lighting.


So what we are going to do is upload our lighting rigs in scene files like .blend or .3ds etc.


It helps out the newfags to dive into lighting and helps us out via learning the techniques of others.

Bumping my own thread because this thread could be useful

Instead of just dumping the scene, could you explain why the set up is the way it is and what the reasons are behind it? The science of it and all that shiz?

I can mimic the same set up as other people but I never get to understand why, just the how.

Learning studio lighting and how various materials react to light (Reflection, refraction, IOR, translucency, etc) is the best way to become great at it. Working with real-scale sizes also helps the engine calculate all the virtual photons correctly!
