Rendering Tip - Use Camera Lights

By using lights attached to the camera, you can:
  • Add illumination which moves with the camera.
  • Make it easy to render several views of a model without having to add additional lights for each view.
  • Insure that the objects you are focusing on are well illuminated.

It is often very difficult to place enough lights in your drawing to be fully realistic. Ambient light settings help with this, but often produce a flat effect. By placing movable lights, attached to the camera you can add effective illumination and highlighting which will be used for all views.

These can be multiple lights attached to the camera - but they can be offset as far as desired - left and right, up and down.
