How to use the Light Cove

  1. Download the original Light Cove scene, or the faster version (The original Light Cove takes twice as long to render but looks better).
  2. Open your model file.
  3. Import the Light Cove file into your model file by Selecting File > Import.
  4. Select Panel > Perspective > render_camera. This is so that you'll view your model through the camera lens that comes with the Light Cove.
  5. Move your model so that it is centered on the display turntable.
  6. From the Render Globals Window, Set Image format to .jpg, Resolution to Custom (width=800 height=600), and Anti-aliasing Quality to Production Quality. Enable Raytracing if your model involves reflections.
