Rhino 8 – Sun and Sky Render by SimplyRhino UK

Sun and Sky Render for Architectural Interior

This beginner-level video, created by Phil Cook from Simply Rhino UK, demonstrates how to create an interior architectural visual in Rhino 8 using the built-in Sun and Sky system and Rhino’s Raytrace render engine.

1. How to apply library and custom materials

The video begins by introducing a method of setting up the interior perspective view by controlling Rhino’s camera widget before applying library and custom materials to scene elements.

2. Connecting the sun and sky

Phil then looks at setting up the Sun as a direct illumination source and replacing the default environment with the Physical Sky model to connect the sun and sky.

3. Raytrace Render Engine

The final rendering is created with the Raytrace render engine. Phil outlines how to use post effects to improve the exposure and export a transparent background so that the color-ramp sky can be easily replaced with a photographic image in subsequent editing.
