Darkening the Shadows (New for 5)

Shadows take a very important part in every scene. They not only indicate the directions of the light, but also create atmospheres in the environment, and emphasize the existence and mass objects in the 3D scene.

You may combine several features in iClone to darken the shadows, in order to generate a high contrast feeling of light, such as at noon time.

Darkening the Shadows

  1. Prepare a project with default light. Switch to the Self Cast Shadow mode. By default, the shadow is not very strong.
  2. In the Light Setting section, select a darker color for the Ambient Light.
  3. Increase the light strength by adding the value of Multiplier.
  4. In the Shadow Setting section, increase the Opacity.
