And because of light linking, you'd know those highlights won't affect anything else in the scene. You can also use light linking to gain more precise control over how different objects are lit. If you have a light illuminating many objects in your scene, you might find that it looks good on most of the objects, but somehow appears to light other objects with the wrong intensity, color, or angle. Instead of settling for a compromise, you can make a second copy of your light, and link it to the objects that weren't well lit.
56 57 Ambient Occlusion Ambient occlusion is a function designed to darken parts of your scene that are blocked by other geometry or less likely to have a full view of the sky. You can use ambient occlusion as a replacement or supplement to the shadows in your fill lights. The main idea behind ambient occlusion is hemispheric sampling or looking around the scene from the point of view of each point on a surface. 27 shows how rays are sampled in all directions from a point being rendered. The more of these rays hit an object (instead of shooting off into empty space), the darker the ambient occlusion.
Increasing the light radius to 3, for example, is the same as having used an area light with a 3-unit radius. Using a light radius parameter does not create any visible change to your rendering compared to using a round area light. It only changes how you control the softness (by adjusting this parameter instead of scaling the light), and gives you the flexibility to use different kinds of lights, such as a spotlight, to create soft raytraced shadows. 26. Turning up the number of Shadow Samples or Shadow Rays will smooth out the shadow, although increasing the sampling will slow down your rendering, making the raytracer do many times more work in computing the shadow.
