Night Lighting Rendering with Vray & 3ds Max

This is a tutorial/making of showing some setup for night lighting, I will share the ies lighting setup, vray camera and render settings so you can have an idea of how you can do your lighting for your night rendering.

You can look the tutorial of Daylight version of this scene CLICKING HERE

In this time I am using vray ies and not the native photometric lights from 3ds max, because the vray ies lights are faster, also I am using vray sphere lights, is it important to know where to put your lights so you can have a nice and soft lighting in your scene, and some nice spec and bump, depending of the angle or your lights the shaders will interact with these.

I have one main vray sphere light in the center lamp of this scene, check the setup:

Now for giving more exposure to the books and the tv, I placed two vray ies lights with these parameters:

To add some nice shadows around the sofa I have a floor lamp and a desk lamp side by side, this will add a nice soft light and shadows around the sofa, check the lighting setting of each light:

For the Blue exterior light, I have a vray dome light with a dark blue, check here:

Now the more important of this scene is the vray physical camera settings:

No to finish this this is the render settings used in this particular scene:

For post production, I did some color correction, balance, levels, sharpen and glow.

Remember that you can buy this scene so you can see more in depth the settings of the shaders, use the 3d models, make some practices inside the scene with the lights, play with the vray camera and a lot of things that you learn and use from this file that include the PSD FILE of the post.
