Hello, my name is Fred Durand.I have been working in the industry for more than 20 years at Dreamworks, Disney features, MPC, Digital Domain among others, I am specialized in lighting, shading and compositing.
This tutorial is an introduction to lighting with Solid’s Angle Arnold, a renderer I know since 2006 when I worked on the animated film “monster house” at Sony imageworks, I was happily surprised to see Arnold incorporated to Maya in 2016, Arnold is a great renderer,CPU and GPU based, production proven and personally i love how compositing can take advantages of its AOVs
This is an ideal tutorial for beginners who feel intimated by the complexity of the software and for seasoned artists who need to transition from another renderer, during this 90 minutes we are going to look at the main tools and interface.
I hope that at the end, you will feel more confident and exited about Arnold, stay tuned ! I will create more in depth tutorials in the near future !
