Brilliant work giannis.
Thanks. Patrick deserves all the credits creating the materials, rendering and animation.
I presume you could do a similar effect on external renders
shading from day to night.
Would that be possible ?
That may be actually harder than one may think. A partial workaround is possible, that is to generate multiple suns, but there can be only a single sky/IBL source definition at the moment.
We are mostly looking for scenes where photos are available, so that we can create as much realistic materials as possible. The particular scene was a contest winner, giving also a lot of ways adding extra lights.
