This topic addresses two key factors that affect lighting quality and effectiveness:
Luminance Ratios. The ranges of luminance in any field of view.
Adaptation. As scenes change, our eyes can adapt to a very wide range of luminance levels. But, we need time to adapt.
This topic explores various design issues relative to both luminance ratios and adaptation.
Computer-generated images. Multiple images are now being generated via computer simulation to show the visual impacts of various task-ambient lighting approaches.
The topic will be available in Shockwave. When the images for this topic have
been generated, access via Shockwave will be provided.
