Hi everyone,

In this video, I show you some cool techniques for lighting in cycles that can quite often get overlooked.

We'll take a look at the following things:

  • Transmission
  • Light bouncing
  • Volumes
  • Emissive material lighting
  • Separating the world background from the render background

Feel free to download the free demonstration files from Gumroad.

Thanks for watching and have a great day!
