Hey guys,

I have a question about how Physical Sky connected to light in native LW. If we choose the spot light and the intensity falloff put 1km +/-, then why in Physical Sky - Ignore Light is 'none'? I'm still a bit confuse how it works between the native light and Physical Sky.

Hope the next version of Kray they have another option that can rotate the sun in Physical Sky 360' (Heading, Pitch, Bank)

Thanks.

Azmen

Sorry guys but I don`t understand what the problem with physcy.... It is very easy make position of sun...just need small training. I know immposible is make in first prev render correct position..but always during projects we make many previews and that is enough to correct position of sun. Just make the basic scene with room (can by just cube with hole as windows) and play with this 20 min (renders ~5-10 sec) after that You don`t need any extra tool.
PS
I sugest realy use only physky+sun (from Kray) this is better quality, speed and more natural light then LW and HDRi....

...nevertheless, a button to match any light vector in a scene would be very helpful, and was requested many times, as this way we could have a precise setup for existing scenes. matching a determined light vector with the currentkray plugin needs lots of render tests (and therefore time)

i'd even be very happy with a simple extra script which could do this. any chance to see this before releasing a completely revised physical sky plugin?
