Hello,

Here is a spinning skylight rig I made.. It uses sliders to control the spin rate and light intensity. Documentation is included. Enjoy!

Here's a simple render I did with the rig + one key spotlight.

Just a hair under 3 minutes at medium AA. (1.8 GHz P4)

Carm is this like an alternative to radiosity?
If it is how long would the real radiosity time be compared to spinning lights 3 mins time?

Kinda sorta, yeah.. The light doesn't bounce, but it gives a look similar to background only radiosity. But quicker.

That's a good question.. Try running some tests! :D I don't have time for benchmarking rightn now.
