      A new lighting feature called Exposure is now available in the rendering module of 2020 Design. Exposure allows you to easily brighten or darken a room even after it’s been rendered.

      Here’s how you can adjust Exposure:
      1. Once your camera is positioned, click the Camera icon to render the image.
      2. Now that the rendering is complete, click the Light Bulb icon in the rendering navigation bar.
      3. Notice “Image” is already selected. Place a checkmark next to “Exposure” and move the slider.
      4. Once satisfied with your lighting, you can now save the rendering as a JPG or any other available format.

      More information about Exposure:

      The Exposure Image Property allows you to change the rendering brightness (tone mapping) in real-time, using a scale of 1% to 10% of more or less brightness. The slider bar or the value field can be used. This feature uses the Tone mapping process which ensures that the details in highlights and shadows in the image can be correctly viewed on printouts and standard monitors in spite of their limited dynamic range capability. Exposure helps you output better printouts, CRT or LCD projected images, since these devices all have a limited dynamic range that is inadequate to reproduce the full range of light intensities present in natural scenes.
