…So far all we see from our IBL…node is environment mapping, we're getting the reflections.…Now, it's time to add diffuse illumination.…I've stored this image so we can compare it and select the IBL node and in…the attribute editor, scroll down, you're looking for…the section labeled Light Emission and open that up.…This is the diffuse elimination.…You want to switch on emit light.…And you've got a bunch of attributes here.…Quality u and v have to do with how…many samples are taken of the actual texture file.…
So my texture file has hundreds of thousand or millions of…pixels in it and we don't want to sample all of those pixels.…So this is only going to sample 256 in u and 256…in v and that's fine we don't really need to change that.…Then we come to samples and low samples.…Samples and Low Samples operate differently than they do for area lights.…The attribute names sound the same, but they do something completely different.…Samples has to do with how many…directional, or point lights, will be created.…
So currently, if I left this at its…
