Anybody have any good settings for nighttime using Maya Physical Sky?

If you render in exr format you'll be able to control the gamma in post and do a "day for night". That's the only way I know of at this point.

If you lower the R and G values of the RGB unit conversion you'll tint the sky towards
a night sky blue. Also lower the sky multiplier to lower the intensity to match a night sky.
The sun now acts as the moon.
You can achieve some really nifty night renderings this way :thumbsup:
