Enable Skylight before Baking Light

I have a large indoor scene. Lighting is

1 a few dozen Stationary SpotLights with cast shadows

2 a Stationary Skylight set to Capture Scene

3 Exponential Height Fog

Should I be enabling my Skylight BEFORE I bake my Lighting?

Your skylight should be on all the time. It will automatically capture the scene if you move it or manually hit recapture, but it will also force a recapture when you bake the lighting and open the project. It’s good to make sure it’s updated so you’re not lighting to an old capture and then everything changes when it get’s recaptured automatically.
