I still don't agree zytrex you are comparing simple GI with advanced normal lighting setups.
Anyone can place a spot and a skylight just as anyone can make a basic 3point lighting setup. The trick is to learn to use GI. In reality the light doesn't come from all directions at the same intensity, therefore using a skylight like that is simply bad use of GI.

btw lighting for an animation doesn't need to be as precise as for a still, the brain of the viewer does most of the work in an animation.

And I'm sure if the makers of final fantasy had had the oppertunity to use GI they would have jumped at the chance.

Look at the shadow of the top left leg of the bed in my scene, it has a pefectly nice shadow -> GI
Panic, it crept up my spine like first rising vibes of an acid frenzy. All these horrible realities began to dawn on me. Here I was, alone in Las Vegas, completely twisted on drugs..
