Working with Direct and Indirect light
This tutorial is designed for those new to Design 3D who want to know the difference between direct and indirect diffuse illumination. It also shows how to control parameters which influence these lighting types in Render dialog. It specifically looks at the Lighting, Shadow and Detail panels, covering Raydiosity Bounces, Cache Hits, Adaptive Shadow Sampling, and Anti-Aliasing parameters as they relate to direct and indirect illumination.
