Lighting
Gnomonology training - Light Linking in heavy scenes
Successful lighting requires the simulation of reflected light. While Global Illumination is a possible approach(more) to automate the process, this can be expensive in terms of render time. The direct lighting technique is conceptually simple, as one adds additional lights that represent light bounce. One of the key Maya tools for this process is the ability to exclusively link lights to specific surfaces. While the Light Linking window is simple enough, its functionality breaks down in geometry-heavy scenes. This 7:54 minute video looks at an alternate technique for light linking that is far more effective.
