Light Systems

In addition to the standard and photometric lights that can be created in 3ds max, there are two lighting systems that can significantly add to the efficiency of lighting an outdoor scene or an indoor scene with a light source that originates outside. Both systems, located in the Create panel > Systems > Standard, calculate the light's location based on your model's location on earth.

Sunlight System

This system links a directional light, representing the sun, to a compass object to determine the sun's location in the sky.
