please help me set up an exterior scene
I have a directional light set to .7 and the rest is what I don't understand.
You should turn off "Default lights" first in the Global Switches rollout in the Rendering menu.
Then turn on Environment settings to override the standard max enviroment settings. "-its like putting in a skylight"
After these go to the Indirect ilumination panel and set Irradiance map for the
first GI engine / in the irradiance map settings change the Built in presents to low quality for test renderings.
1Hopeu can do it...
