Title: NEED HELP! lighting issues
Post by: WKSouthwest on December 12, 2014, 04:18:09 am
I am currently working with excavator buckets, and i apply a steel material.
My problem lies with lighting, the inside of the bucket is too dark compared to the outside, but increasing the brightness doesn't work..
How do i get rid of any darkness within an object, while still maintaining a full color of the object, especially with reflective objects with materials like metals.

Please help :)

Thank you in Advance!

Hi WK - Try a different HDR environment map, especially if the one you are using has a dark or black sky. Otherwise if you use KS 5 Pro then you can add pin lights via the environment editor, and you could also use an IES or area light to highlight the inside of the bucket.

That's about the best advice i can give without a sample image to see

You don't need the Pro version in order to add lights using the light material.
