i have a scene with a cg glass cup and there is no light coming through it, how can i fix that, i thought about HDRI but i dont know if that would help, im quite new to 3d modelling and everything in this area.

You can either create an HDRI with a smartphone or a 3d camera for best results. That would give you a good base to work with when it comes to lighting.

Another option would be to have a look at the scene you are tracking (if it is a video you took) and try to replicate the lighting according to it. That could involve setting up a 'sun' light object, or multiple area lights.
