- Create a simple poly plane
- Check normals to point to your target
- Create and assign a "emitter" material to your poly plane
- ...then render

GOOD news is that you CAN use spot or directional lights as your MAXWELL SUN!!!! in the new maxwell 1.7/new maya plugin!!

in your render globals there is a section inthe env that lets you control whether maxwell uses the sun based on geographic location or selected object!!!

This is a HUGE SUPRISE!!! THANSK NL!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!! I havnt been this excited about maxwell since alpha/beta days!
