Basic Light and Lighting Terminology in Rendering

Post by Fletch » Fri Oct 14, 2011 8:02 am

If you are starting out or maybe you've been rendering a while, but haven't really studied much about the subject, Light and Lighting in CG (computer graphics) has many words, (technical terms or terminologies) that it would be good to understand. If you find yourself confused by all the terms, or if you think rendering discussions are confusing, then this link may help.

Here's a nice tutorial ( :rspkt: ) by Itchy Animation with each technical term and a picture to accompany/explain/describe the term.
