Lighting and Rendering 1

This course builds on the principles learned in Introduction to 3D in Maya. Students will learn to create artistic and cinematic lighting setups with Autodesk’s Maya and Chaos Group’s VRay. Instruction covers creating renders that enhance visual storytelling through lighting, techniques to light characters, products, exterior and interior environments, and lighting for live action footage. Classes include a mixture of weekly lighting demonstrations, discussions of cinematic approaches using industry standard methods, project critiques, and industry tips. Students will explore various styles of lighting through homework assignments and work towards completing a polished final project for review.
