RNL was rendered entirely with image-based lighting: the synthetic objects were illuminated with real light captured in UC Berkeley's eucalyptus grove. The basic technique is described in the following paper:
|Paul Debevec. Rendering Synthetic Objects into Real Scenes: Bridging Traditional and Image-Based Graphics with Global Illumination and High Dynamic Range Photography. In SIGGRAPH 98, July 1998.|
|The RNL lighting environment, as well as the lighting environments from our 1999 film Fiat Lux, are available in the Light Probe Image Gallery.|
|RNL was mentioned in Animation World Magazine and on Canal +.|
|The contributors to Rendering with Natural Light are Kevin Deus, Tim Hawkins, Gregory Chew, David Metzger, Hal Wasserman, and Chris Wright.|
|There is also a 1600x1200 high-resolution image from Rendering with Natural Light available in TIFF or JPEG.|
