Product Information

Night and Day for Urban Future 4. This light set uses the advanced features in the Advanced Spotlight and Advanced Ambient Light by Ageofarmour to create an appearance of realistic lighting without the render times required. Included in this set are mat files for each part of Urban Future 4 to recreate the look seen in the promos. In all there is over 300 lights used.

The lights are separated into 3 main parts: Day Lights, Night Lights Always On. All lights are parented to Nulls and null is positioned at the center of the DAZ Studio scene. If you want to add these lights to a scene containing Urban Future 4 that is not sitting at the center of the scene you can simply copy and paste its position within the Scene Tab to the null. There is also a separate light set up for the stand alone light poles for UF4.

The Day Lights contain a Sun-Spill light. This is included to help create a more natural look to the sun light in your scene. The position of the sun-spill light should always be the same as the sun light but the intensity should be lower and the shadow softer. Colour does not need to be the same.

In the “Always On” set, the Advanced Ambient Light is there to only illuminate surfaces with Ambient turned on. It has been set up to ONLY effect the surface if the Ambient strength is set to 99%. This was done to avoid conflicting with other surfaces in the scene that maybe using ambient effects and would over expose when lit by the Advanced Ambient Light.
