Skylight for interior lighting

Any lighting tutorial I’ve watched uses a skylight only for exterior environments.
Can a skylight also be used for interiors whether to capture a scene or use a hdr?

sure, if you want to capture an interior lower the sky treshold so that it captures the inside of your env.
if you want to use a cubemap you can also use the ambient cubemap feature in PPV, i find it easier to set up…

Thanks. I think what had me confused is the Sky Distance Threshold setting.
Another counter intuitive setting in UE.
You need to set it to a very small value for the Sklyight to have any influence.
