The Lighter’s Workflow

The previous chapter focused on what tools the artist has available in software packages. This chapter will focus on how to use them. It will stress the importance of establishing a lighting workflow that enables the artist to be as efficient and effective as possible. This workflow will be explained from pre-lighting to work-in-progress lighting and through final render. The more efficient the workflow, the more lighting iterations the artist will be able to output before the deadline which ultimately leads to the best-looking images.
