Windlights for Materials
Hard to believe but it has been five years since I made all the "Places" Windlights that are now in many third party viewers. I had been thinking of putting up more settings -- especially ones that works well with materials (normal and specular maps).
Here are two that I use often. You can download them from Mediafire. Then add them to your "skies" folder of your favorite viewer. Use them as a starting point to make your personal favorite atmospheres. Moving the Est Ang slider will adjust shadows to fit in various sets within the sound stage. Use Gamma to lighten the scene as needed.
Cloudless when used in a white floored area also gives very dramatic "white room ala The Matrix" look. It works well indoors also. Sound Stage Shadows are for use in the Sound Stages (well natch).
