Controlling Indirect Lighting

5m 50s

In this course, David Tracy will show you how to use Unity as an interactive architectural visualization tool.

First you will learn interfacing with Unity and how to import and export your project within Rhino and SketchUp. Then, you will learn how to use shaders, materials, textures, and lighting for your project. Finally, you will learn how to create scripts to enable you to interact with your scene.

When you are done with this course, you'll know how to navigate Unity to start building your own interactive walkthroughs and visualizations.

Unity has a global illumination engine called Enlighten that is pretty similar to how other rendering engines do calculations on light sources to calculate the effects of indirect light. That's light bouncing off of surfaces and affecting other surfaces in your scene. In order to use Enlighten, we have to make sure that our model is set up in a certain way.
