About Film Lighting on an XR Stage


In this article Mediatrade’s lighting designer Tommi Rosnell explores the following topics in depth:

  • Image-Based Lighting
  • New demands of accuracy in film lighting
  • Thoughts about how picture resolution translates into light information

“It is especially challenges of versatility and accuracy that lighting meets today on a VFX production, whether it is shot on a chroma key stage or on an XR Stage. Continuously increasing authenticity of computer-generated imagery translates to growing demand of more accurate realism in interaction between real and virtual world.”
Writes our lighting designer and ICVFX Specialist Tommi Rosnell.
