New Lighting Architecture

The new lighting architecture brings physical lights that can be optionally visible to the camera. Primitive lights turn any geometry or primitive object into a physical light. Portal lights aid interior rendering. Environment light gives the look of Global Illumination without the render time. In addition, there is improved loading of IES web files which allow closer matching to the intensity of real manufactured lights.
