Rant about Windlight removed because I'm a total dumbass. You know the trick of pointing lots of lights at your avatar to get rid of the environmental lighting? I rely on that trick for my product images. I was complaining that it wasn't working in Windlight and nobody cared, and that even turning shaders off doesn't help.

Well, turning shaders off didn't seem to help a few weeks ago, but I tried it again today just to confirm, and... well, did I mention that I'm a total dumbass? It works. So, those of you that want the environmental shadows to go away, do the following:

1. Go into Preferences.
2. Turn off either basic shaders or atmospheric shaders. Turning off just the atmospheric ones will leave you with just a hint of environmental shadows.
3. Stick a bunch of local lights around yourself. Go nuts.
4. Ta-da! You now look pretty.

it was my understanding that one of the latest windlight updates had something tweaked to fix that, so that could be why it's working now. Then again, I haven't really been reading those release notes very closesly, or with a very awake mind, so I could be *very* wrong.

I checked the release notes just now and didn't see anything, though I could have missed it. Just because something's not in the notes doesn't mean it wasn't changed, either.
