Sun for noob

Post by Matteo » Wed Mar 25, 2015 7:35 pm

good morning,
sorry for the noob question but it is only recently that I approached to indigo max.
How do I set the position of the sun in sun / sky environment? not like in skindigo?
thanks!!

Hi Matteo,

You set up position of sun with light node from scene (as it gives some visual feedback).
You need to set Rendering > Environment... > environment map to IndigoSunSky. It's a bit tricky to edit map properties (if not used to max workflow) as you need to drag and drop map to material editor and choose Instance mode (this way all changes to map will affect original map).
Once you'll be able to edit map parameters you set sun node to your light node (suggested directional light or sun/sky system).
Hope it helps.

Matteo
