My explorations were inspired this morning by this photo↑ from Prandi Capalini↑ (who does exceptional work). I was hoping for a location to mess with settings and this bit of mainland (yes, it’s mainland) was ideal.
One of the many things I lost when I had to replace my hard drive was my folder of windlight settings. I finally set out the other day to rebuild that inventory and discovered that the links to some of my favourites no longer work. I was not a happy camper.
I came up with a solution which works exceedingly well but may leave me open to condemnation. I haven’t decided if I should feel guilty about this or not but I’m going to put it out there for those who might wind up with the same problem. I, um, sourced them from a third party viewer.
When I realized this other viewer has all the settings I was missing (plus some great new ones), I downloaded it and copied the windlight files to my desktop. Then I uninstalled that viewer and put the settings in the one I use.
In spite of feeling like a criminal I had fun playing with them. You should go visit Purple↑ - if the viewer police come looking for me, just spell my name wrong. They’ll never find me. :)
