The Sunlight System

The first light type you'll practice using contains a standard light type, but it's actually a system of components. The Sunlight system in 3ds max 7 consists of a compass that indicates north direction, a standard Target Direct light, and an animation controller that controls position. A Direct light casts its light in a cylinder from the source, resulting in parallel shadows across the lit area. The controller is used to simulate the sun position in real-world terms.
