Maya sunlight through a window??
on Mar 14, 2011 at 1:34:35 pm

I have been looking allll day for a tutorial on how to get light to pass through a window and there are millions on how to set up the lighting but none of them tell me how to get the light to actually go through the window?

What material do I use? How do I set it up? Does the entire scene have to be enclosed?

I want to animate a sunset so is there anyway of setting up MR physical sun/sky to pass through the windows??

I'm new to lighting but I really want this to look good for my uni projects if anyway can point me towards a tutorial or give me some step by step instruction I would be very grateful!

Try a mental ray portal light. Here's a bunch of links to tutorials.
