When lighting in Maya, you do not need to know the kelvin temperature of a light source. What is important, however, is that the color of the light logically fits the type of source. For example, daytime sunlight varies from white to blue. Firelight varies from red to orange. Incandescent lightbulbs are yellowish. If a light color is out of place, a scene may appear incorrect to the viewer. This should not be confused with the way colors are recorded on film, where colors are often exaggerated.

Rim lights (and other fundamental aspects of lighting design) can trace their roots to early theatrical stage lighting. Early examples of their use in motion pictures include, but are not limited to, Old and New (1929), directed by Sergei Eisenstein, and the 1920s comedies of Charles Chaplin (A Woman of Paris, Gold Rush, and so on). Eventually, rim lights were used to impart a fantastic glow to the hair of heroines such as Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca (1942), Rita Hayworth in Gilda (1946), and Grace Kelly in Rear Window (1954).

However, the rule may have evolved as a simplified variation of the golden rectangle subdivided according to the golden mean. ) The rule of thirds is useful for modern media, such as videography, that often require quick compositional decision making. The golden mean, on the other hand, is appropriate for painting and 3D since more time can be spent contemplating composition. In any case, attention to compositional detail will improve any animation you choose to tackle. 38 ​A golden rectangle (red) divided in accordance to the rule of thirds (yellow) Note: ​Screen direction, a system of motion picture rules developed over the last 100 years, dictates how and where characters, vehicles, and props should be positioned and/or be allowed to move through a series of shots.
