Stefan Müller: „Lighting Design in CG“ Lecture


This talk shows how we can use lighting as a tool to craft (hopefully!) good looking CG imagery. We are looking at references, techniques that modern art painters used and how to transfer them to CG, how real world photography works and how that translates to CG, some technical bits whenever it can help us to make educated guesses, some tricks and tips on how to work around certain limitations that we might encounter, and excursions to cameras, lookdev and compositing to help us with our lighting.
