How to make scene start dark/black and slowly illuminate over time?


I am working on a VR project for school and trying to work on a scene where the user starts out in a black/dark area. Slowly, light pours in and they realize they are in the middle of a forest (they see the silhoutte of trees, etc).

Can anyone help me or direct me to the resources to do this?


If you’re using realtime lighting you could increase light intensity or change color through animation, tweening, lerp, etc.

Otherwise you could create a canvas with a solid color overlay and change the alpha in a similar way.
