The Sunlight System

As mentioned earlier, the Sunlight System consists of a compass rose for positioning and a directional light that acts as the sun source.

A directional light in 3ds max 6 casts light from the source within two cylinders: the hotspot and falloff cylinders. The inner hotspot cylinder has full-intensity light. The light within the area between the hotspot and outer falloff cylinders diminishes in a linear manner. There is no light outside the falloff cylinder. There are also no shadows calculated outside the falloff cylinder.
