Image synthesis is highly dependent on rendering algorithm and optical properties of scenario objects. The goal of this work is to develop a methodology to obtain some illumination parameters of a real scenario represented by an acquired image, and use these parameters for a virtual scenario rendering with the same objects as the original. The proposed methodology consists, first, in acquiring an image of the working scenario, and by using a DE (Differential Evolution) algorithm to render
