Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to increase ambient/shadow lighting?

How do I increase the ambient light in a scene in shadows?

Basically, I have an indoor scene with only a few lights. The shadow areas are black.

How do I make the shadows lighter so that they aren't pure black?

Do you have static or dynamic lights?

I have both, but mainly static lights.

So if you have static lights in your scene you can have (realistic) GI... if you want to make your shadows brighter I would set the number of light bounces higher (3 <10) and would use a postprocess volume to adjust exposure... If you don't need realistic result you can drop anothe light into your scene without casting shadows to get a dake ambient lighting...
