I am modelling a room that has a large floor to ceiling window. The garden outside the window is very small and and there is a 2m high wall around it. When standing in the room and looking out the window you can see all of the timy garden and the wall covered in vines. When the sun is high in the sky the garden lights up and the room lightens dramatically.
I’m trying to find a way to create that ambient light with shadows in side the room but I can’t get it right.
- If I use a sun the then the wall creates a shadow into the house
- If I use a hemi then there are no shadows
I’d like to either
- put a sun on the inside of the wall
- or, make the wall invible just to this second ambient sun
Currently, I’m using an area light which is most of the width of the garden. it kind of works but is a little hard to work with.
