This is more like an SLC (speed modeling challenge.)

We did it for a default lighting setup to use in future smcs

your setup is interestinng, Jeepster[]. I saw that your spot lights didn’t have that little line portuding from the center of it so i figured it had raytraced shadows. then i look at it’s settings and it turns out it has NO shadows! i never even knew you could turn the shadows off in that way. good work!

The goal for me was to: Show the form of the model, render fast and not look too bad.

I’m still doing some tweaks to it…

I didn’t use AO or raytracing, so rendertime is about 4 seconds.
I’ve used it on others now…
