so I'm trying to use this ctrl object light stuff from CTRL Studio finally.
http://www.xsiarabia.com/vb/showthr...p?p=175#post175 (http://www.xsiarabia.com/vb/showthread.php?p=175#post175)
but I'm having some difficulties!
I was able to install the SPDL in XSI 5-11 via Plug-ins Load or something like that and it did copy the file to my user/dr ... Apps/spdl directory okay.

I can add the Primative Geometry Shader Primative but when I go to add the geolight there isn't one anywhere I can find? I think it's missing something like a preset shader or something?!? I am expecting some kind of file like
C:\Softimage\XSI_5.11\Data\DSPresets\Shaders\Geometry\geolight.Preset
Would that be an incorrect assumption?
How do I find it where? add geolight?
Given scene file renders black too.

I found the missing geolight file here...
C:\users\MyName\Softimage\XSI_5.11\Data\DSPresets\Shaders\Geometry\geolight.Preset

It will crash if you turn on Global Illumination for the light I believe.

It does seem to be working well to replace HDRI failings as I hoped.
