Maya Lighting & Rendering 2: Mental Ray Part 5 - Portal Lights

This tutorial continued the use of Maya's Physical Sun and Sky but by applying it to an indoor scene. The Physical Sun and Sky is an external light so it needs Portal Lights in order to have an affect in a scene like this one where the light shines into a room. Because of the Portal Lights, the Physical Sun and Sky, Bump Maps, and other elements in the scene, the render time was high despite adjusting settings such as Final Gather. I like how the rendered image looks realistic since I'm interested in realism, despite knowing that this is not really suitable for animation due to the render time.
