Are Interior Lights Really Working with Interior Daylight Setting?

If I set a render to Interior Daylight and turn the lights to ON, the lights don't actually light up. It seems like the lights should light up regardless if make a noticeable difference in the lighting of the render.

Render set to Interior Lighting:

Same scene set to Interior Daylight (lights turned off):

Same scene set to Interior Daylight (lights turned ON):

You would think that the inside of the light fixture would be lit at a minimum.

Make sure your scale is accurate and the value that you're using for your light intensity is accurate.  Scale is important to make sure the light source isn't too big-- that does affect its brightness relative to the sun. Making the light source smaller will result in a brighter surface.  You can use the cursor when rendering (or in the image editor) to measure the brightness of the source's surface.  For reference, a 100 watt light bulb is about 100,000 cd/m^2 (that would be brighter than anything else in the scene-- even snow.)

It's legitimate to turn the sun and perhaps the sky down to 60% or so-- they are calibrated for the brightest day.  Any more than that is not recommended.

If you want me to take a look, I'd be happy to.

Turning down the intensity of the sun & sky did the trick Roy. I've never turned either down that much before now. Thanks for the help.

Here's the same render with both set to 75%.

Perspective between 3D model and background image on NXT autocad 2015

Hi, I would like to insert my 3D model on an image in background, obviously with the correct position, size and perspective lines.Is there a method to move the 3D model to adapt it at the image in background?At the moment i can only try to setting the position of my 3D model with the Autocad camera and launch the render to control if the position is correct, but it's impossible to find it. I must render my 3D model and put it in my image with Photoshop. Not a great result.Look down here, the…See More
