In this tutorial you’ll concentrate on Spot Light. We’ll demonstrate the use of Spot Light and its shadows; we’ll see mostly used attributes of a light especially spot light.
Spot light draws on a spot. If you need to make radial or circular shape light effect or you want to draw light with fog on some specific area, you will have to choose spot light for this purpose. Spot light is one of the most important light features of Maya or any other 3D software application. Other famous lights are directional light, ambient light, area light, volume light etc. almost all lights have shadows and ray trace options. We can assign or cancel the shadows to our lights. We can also connect or disconnect object from lights and shadows.
Lighting in Maya is special thing and a complete job. If you want to be a good renderer you should get more skill in assigning lights to the scenes. It’s very important thing while making a scene. There are times when we make a very good scene but we assign lights that are not realistic for our scenes so we get very odd results and we become desperate. So paying attention to light lessons is a necessary thing for some beginner in Maya.
