Remember me complaining bitterly about not being able to select "sun and moon only" in Viewer 2? (The box is inexplicably missing from the graphics tab in preferences.) Not having this option means candles, lights, full bright/glow objects, etc. light up your avatar. Since not every light source can be turned off or modded, you don't have control over the light that is cast in pictures. I posted the question in the SL Blogs and I got an answer from Torley! (And some other helpful people! *cough*exceptnotsimonq.*cough*)
- Select Advanced menu > Debug Settings.
- In the DEBUG SETTINGS window, enter "RenderShaderLightingMaxLevel" and enter a value of "1".
- You probably won't see any changes yet. That's okay, restart your Viewer OR in PREFERENCES window's Graphics tab, click the Advanced button, then click Atmospheric shaders twice (clicking some other settings also works).
