Rendering a Sunset Lighting Interior in V-Ray

In this tutorial I will cover how to set up a sunset lighting using V-Ray sun and V-Ray sky. Creating a sunset image with V-Ray can be really easy because when you use V-Ray sun you just to put this light in the same position of the real sun, so let's get started.

I have used more lights in the scene so that we can have a nice lighting setup, and here are the settings for the window lights (Fig.01).

I also used two V-Ray sphere lights for the lamps and here are the settings (Fig.02).

Now let's move on to the settings and position of the V-Ray sun. This is the light that will make your scene look like a sunset (Fig.03).

And the V-Ray camera is crucial for this render - the settings can be seen in Fig.04.

At this time I used a brute force solution for the rendering setup. It is slower, but you will have a sharper render in the end. It can also be a bit noisy, so check the settings (Fig.05).

I finished up by doing some color correction in Photoshop, and also added glow, chromatic aberration and sharpen filter. And that's all friends (Fig.06)!
