There are many amazing and unreal interior scene we are spoiled by day by day.
Now ask yourself, how many stunning outdoor environment have you seen using Unreal engine.
They are few and far apart.
Why is that? I think its because we lack understanding on utilizing UE lightening system to its full potential.
The Realistic Render Demo is the greatest thing EPIC has every done for the community.
It taught me lightening and how to setup a scene, which in UDK looked like quantum entanglement.
But because of the simplicity of the scene and the fact that i can compare the result to my own living room.
I could recreate real life lightening to high precision. I can also learn how to set up materials suitable for interior scenes.
But outdoor is altogether different. No matter how hard i tried to set up a good lightning scene.
I fail and so does many people.
A rare few are able to breakthrough and shine.
Please, the wonderful people at EPIC, It will be amazing if you could gracefully do a outdoor lightning demo/in-depth tutorial.
It will greatly benefit the community. You will see amazing lit scenes/games popping out left and right.
It will be easier to learn if its kept simple like modern building instead of medieval scene, or desert or village scenes. Most people live in the city.
I was able to pick up interior lightning so quick because i could compare it to my room.
It will be crazy easy to learn how to setup outdoor lightning if it was based on what the outside of my building and those around me looked like.
Then i can compare them in real time and try to recreate effects i wake to everyday.
