Software used:

The light setup is very simple. With the same material emitter, two planes and other emitter objects inside the clock we will be able to obtain very different results in layer blending afterwards. Apply a Fryrender object modifier to each light source, in order to control them via Layer blending. To illuminate the scene, we will use an Environment map too (Fig.09a-c).
