Lights creation simplified.
It’s time to explore the individual aspects of Corona, and we’ll start where it all begins, with lights. The whole process of creating lights is designed to give artists complete control over their scene, while being fast and intuitive.
The most advanced procedural Sun and Sky is the PRG Clear Sky model, which uses real world data to calculate the look of the sky. It gives you access to the following features:
You can save your LightMix setups for reuse from any camera or viewpoint within the scene, so you can instantly reuse those light setups in different renders from the same scene. LightMix is your answer to getting a daytime scene, a nighttime scene, different lights turned on and off, and more - all in one render.
You can also save the separate light passes for compositing or animating later in post-production, which means a single frame can be turned into an animation where the lighting changes.
Take a look at the Interactive LightMix in action in our tutorial videos:
Introduced in Corona Renderer 6, the Adaptive Environment Sampler ensures efficient, accurate, and speedy rendering of HDRI lighting from the environment. It's thanks to the Adaptive Environment Sampler that you no longer need to use portals in Corona Renderer, getting results that are just as good (or better) in the time (or faster) without the pain and effort of setting up portals for your interior scene!
