We just released a few tweaks regarding lights. We think these are necessary improvements but we are still tweaking so any feedback or testing would be appreciated as always
1. Nightmode is now working for normal renders. This means you can make your rooms much darker. You can still not make rooms pitch black (you need photorealistic renders with no lights for that) but the effect of lights in night rooms will be stronger and hopefully offers you new ways to create a better atmosphere.
2. We fixed the "black glass" problem for photorealistic rendering. This will make rooms with lots of glass objects much more realistic. It will take a bit more time to render rooms with lots of glass elements but we think it is worth the extra wait
3. We made some adjustments in the Light intensity of both the sun and lamps for the photorealistic rendering. They are now substantially less intense. Making it easier not to overnight your scenes especially for outdoor scenes .
Anyway hope you enjoy the new possibilities of the tweaks and please let us know if we broke something or can further improve upon this.
