View Full Version : where is ambient light control?

I feel like an idiot for having to ask this since I'm not new to LW, but it doesn't appear to be where the manual says it is.

This is straight from the PDF manual:
The Ambient Light settings are on the Render Globals Panel> Global Illumination Tab.

All I see on that panel are settings for Radiosity and Caustics.

Shift+L to pick your light. Press P to go to properties. And it should be there.

He's right, ambient is in the global illumination panel, but *not* in the global illumination... 'Globals'/ tab. Pretty &@!* confusing too. I can't even find a way to get to the old GI panel, just lucky that I had it mapped to F7 from years ago
