Painting Base Lighting with the FXTree

The idea of painting base lighting, is to control the lighting like with a standard lighting setup but instead of adding lights in the scene, you paint light in a map. This technique is not a new lighting technique, it is just the “Image Based Lighting” technique (IBL). The goal of Painting Base Lighting (PBL) is to be as flexible as 3d lights objects.
