Personally I found the entire tutorial to be extremely detailed, very informative and well executed.

I have never really a great deal of experience with lighting in UE (apart from the standard 2 or 3 point setup) so i actually learned a great deal about the entire lighting system within Unreal.

To have such a depth of information on the history of lighting in one place is really useful as Dave explained really well about the legacy lighting and what was improved upon those to create what we have now in not only do i know what to use and when, i know why too.

Jims scene is outstanding and IMHO is worth the price of the tutorial have such detailed map that has been lit by such an experienced artist and to have him take you through all the steps is more than i could have asked for.

Hi Froyok. Thanks for the purchase! Sorry you didnt find it as useful as you expected. Did you like the Intro to UDK better? Just curious how you would compare them.

Personally I really enjoyed this one because I am so interested in lighting. Dave Prout was very informative and technical while Jim Magill was much more on the practical art side. Another good thing is you get the full scene to re-light and we would love to see any examples in the forum.

I am very disappointed, for that price I expected a very thorough explanation. Instead, it is entitled to a magnificent scene, some effects quickly explained, but few details.
I liked this tutorial pay 50% less expensive for what it is.
Still I have noticed two or three interesting information, but it remains rare and too global.
