Edit V-Ray Light Properties



Configure the light properties for the final render image.

Use below combinations of the lights:

  • The Dome Light only (ver4.2.0 and below)

  • The Dome Light with low intensity and two Rectangle Lights in the front (ver5.0.0 and above)

  • Deactivate the Dome Light and use all three Rectangle Lights (ver5.0.0 and above)
    The above combination is a common setting in studios.

     Option Description
    Dome Light Environment Map Environment Map refers to light settings processed as an image. CLO provides 2 different light settings via Environment Map. Choose the one that meets your need.
    Light Intensity Adjust the brightness of the 3D Garment for the final render image.
    The default value is 1.00, and the range is between 0.00 and 4.00.
    The stronger the Light Intensity, the brighter the 3D garment.
    Light Angle Adjust the direction of the lighting.
    Show Show or hide the HDR image used as a background of the Render window (ver5.1.0).

    Rectangle Light


    Add and configure three rectangle lights at maximum. Adjust their position with the Gizmo tool.


    * To create a three-dimensional render image, there must be a key light. Add key lights as needed to create more dynamic images.

    * When the Rectangle Lights are used along with the Dome Light, generally, a Rectangle Light is used as a key light. Thus, when using Rectangle Lights in combination with the Dome Light, use a HDRI image without a bright spot which acts as a key light.

    * The render speed may decrease incrementally based on the number of Rectangle Lights in use. To optimize the render speed, please only use necessary Rectangle Lights and deactivate unnecessary ones. 



    Configure the intensity of the light.

    ※Note: Though the default value is set to 1.00, users may change the value between 0.00 and 10,000 (ver.5.1.0).

    Color Configure the color of the light.
    Width Configure the width of the light.
    Height Configure the height of the light.
    Show Show or hide the Rectangle Light from the 3D window.


※Note: Use the Open, Save buttons on the top of the Property Editor to save, open, and reuse the setting.
