CG Artists Toolkit: Portal Lights and Mia Material X Shader

 In this tutorial we experiment with portal lights. this type of lighting really helps light up interiors. As can be seen in image 1 use of only the physical sun and sky will take you so far. With a little adjustment of the horizon line and Gamma correction the room starts to look more like it should. However there is still a few issues with final gather and sampling, which is causing all the splotching across the walls.




A few adjustments with linear workflow the addition of glass panes, allowing the reflection of objects within the room, and the results are below



Below is the result X Shader tutorial utilizing mia x material presets. They are practically photo-realistic looking materials.
