I was using SubD to make a simple candle glass. It’s beautifully easy to make curved and soft geometries. But I soon faced with this conundrum; how do I lit it in a convincing manner? In Sketchup, PNG follows the camera, so it’s quite a simple manner. I understand that this may not be feasible with different camera views existing in Rhino. I have used a script that makes images face the camera, but I wouldn’t want to run the script every time for candle lights.
How would you guys make nice looking candles?
