    Rendering with sun and internal light?

    Do you guys have a good patent for that?

    I've been pulling my hair out trying to find the right balance, either the sun light was too strong (while I really like those long shadows going inside the room), or the internal artificial light were way to dim (including studio lights).

    Adjusting exposure didn't help much.

    So I ended up doing 2 renderings, one with internal lights only, one with external light only, and then export them both, put them to photoshop, overlay and make one of them 40% transparent, so that the image is still bright but sunlight shows up nicely too without overburning the surfaces.

    Do you have better patent for that?

    It really takes 1 minute in photoshop, but it's a pain that you need to render the same image twice.

    I actually used free Gimp or that purpose, but Photoshop will do exactly same work.

    Yep easy fix, and does make a lot of difference. But like you said pain in the neck to need to render twice.

    Rendering is like photography. You wouldn't see the lights in a photograph so you won't see them in a render. You see them in IRL be side your eyes have a hell of a lot more range than an image. The process you're using is basically making a High Dynamic Range image.

    Last time I had this problem I set the internal light , studio light, to a more powerful lumen effectiveness. It helped. Once I had to
    do the internal renndering thoe lights were turned invisibile, and I used a different set of lights.
