Hi All,

I was wondering if a light position/intensity standard exist. Many 3D programs today allow to set a predefined 1 or 2 or 3 predefined lighting setup. Can I find somewhere a table like the one below?

Lighting scheme A
light 1 direction, diffuse, specular
light 2 direction, diffuse, specular

Lighting scheme B
light 1 direction, diffuse, specular
light 2 direction, diffuse, specular
light 3 direction, diffuse, specular

...


Thanks,

Alberto

For virtual predefined setup, try to avoid to have subject and the 3 lights on the same plane.
