One thing this demo didn't cover is when making the light larger, as you did, you will start to get an area of "reduced light".

As you can see already starting to happen when you set it to 2m. The dark patch on the floor underneath it.

Users should be aware of the this side affect of large radius spherical lights.

One other observation, William...
You left the name the same as an earlier tut, "Layout_Domelight.mov." You may want to change that.
