This page provides information about the Lighting Render Element in V-Ray for Cinema 4D.


 The Lighting Render Element stores direct lighting information from lights in the scene and materials as lit by the lighting. This render element can be used to brighten, lessen, or tint the direct lighting in a composite.

The VRayLighting render element is the same as VRayRawLighting multiplied by VrayDiffuseFilter. VRayLighting is provided as a convenience to the compositor.
