This page gives some basic details about the Raw Total Lighting Render Element and explains how it is used in compositing.

 

Overview


The Raw Total Lighting Render Element is the sum of all raw lighting (both direct and indirect) in the scene, without any diffuse details.

This pass is useful for changing the appearance of the scene's lighting in a compositing or image editing application.
