- If you want to add a little bit more realism…to your scene you can also add shadows and fog.…Now these are on the View menu…and we have two options here.…One is Shadows and that turns on and off shadows,…and you can see those here…and we also have Fog which allows you…to have what's called a depth cue.…Now we can control these through Windows here.…Now on the Mac, you're going…to actually have a floating window,…but on Windows, you're going to go into…your Default Tray and make sure you have…Shadows and Fog clicked on and those should…show up in your Default Tray.…
In fact, I'm going to go ahead and pin this…so we can see it.…So we have two windows here,…again, on OSX it will be floating.…But Shadows allows you to change…exactly what time of day it is.…In fact, I'm going to go ahead and turn off Fog here…for right now.…So under Shadows, I can change the position of the sun…from sunrise to sunset.…I can change the date of the year…and I can change how much of a contrast…I have between light and dark.…
I can also turn on Use Sun for Shading…
