he, I have created a tank which i put in a real background. It looks and blends the coolest (in the background) with skylight (and advanced lighting - Light tracer) on. The problem is rendering time takes hours, because i've some reflective in my scene too. I did render without skylight with just omni lights, and it renders alot quicker, but it doesn't look real. Isn't there another way (mayb a plugin) which creates the same lighting as skylight but renders lot faster??? thanks
