In the Lights collections it is possible to add and store addtional lights to be used during rendering.








Preset ligthning

The best way to light the preset scene is to use a HDRI envirement in the Blender file. One is provided in the zipfile that can be used.

This is how the Material text file must look like:
That holds the information about the materials.

101080,Yellow_Castings,
101081,Yellow_Castings,
101162,Black_Plastic_Dull,
