I'll try that. I'm learning by bits and pieces as I go. I am going to be at BaselWorld for a day next week and hopefully, I can grab some time with a trainer doing demos in an exhibit booth. Might you know of someone who will be there?

Hi Martha,

Try this... Change the Sky intensity to .1 This will allow the spot light to have more impact in the scene. You'll notice that the Sky is also assigned to "channel" 0 by default. Your spot light will also have a channel number (1 by default). In the render window you can adjust the power of the sky and the spot separately with the sliders in the "Channels" section. I also like to use the Brightness and Burn options in the "Adjust Image" section to further tune the image.

I mean in Flamingo. I have a 20 inch square machine product our engineers designed in SolidWorks and gave me the assembled parts from which I am trying to produce a top notch rendering for marketing purposes in Rhino and Flamingo. I am a rank amature. Your video helped with materials and environment, but the studio lighting is driving me nuts. I am using spot lights without much success.

Hi Martha,

Thanks, I'm glad it helped. I'll be posting more videos soon. Out of curiosity, are you looking for something on the "Studio Lighting" preset or do you mean photo studios for product photography in general?

Thank you, Brian! Your video is exactly what I was looking for. You're very understandable. How about doing a video tutorial on studio lighting?
