That is, a "Spectral" atmosphere with just one light source - the midday sun.In 3 steps, a series of lighting changes are discussed and the results are shown for this radiosity rendered scene. We end with a lighting scheme of 14 light sources.Skill LevelThis is not a step-by-step tutorial. It assumes intermediate level knowledge of Vue lighting. Lighting details are not included, only the lighting scheme concepts and the results of applying those.Enjoy!
