    Fantastic videos! Thank you! Just one question, when I change the map resolution (using an hdr map I have) value to 1024 as in your video the lighting intensity does not increase. The lighting level just stays low. Can you offer an explanation why?

    I definitely liked this tutorial. The lighting setup was explained not only well, but it was concise. Compared to most tutorials I've seen, this one combines all of the important aspects of lighting a scene. Thank you for this video.
