Skylight and Sun intenstiy


#1

I’m new.

I see references in the literature to adjusting the brightness or intensity of the skylight (and sun).

Neither is adjustable in the Lights Panel. No slider in the File Properties.

How do I adjust the intensity of the skylight?

Thanks, Jeff

The active render plugin you use will determine where to adjust the skylight but I’ll bet if you’re new to Rhino you’re using the default Rhino Renderer. The skylight in that case is adjustable in the Environments panel (use the Panels drop down menu). You can make a new environment with the plus symbol and then adjust the color for the intensity. If you use an HDR texture in the environment, this image will have a multiplier value you can adjust. Think of the skylight as a light from all directions that can be based on a HDRI. The Sun is adjusted in terms of the horizon via the Sun panel.

This might help too…
