With a good hdri i’m getting nice colored specular reflections but there’s no shadows
with a directional light placed in around the “sun” region in the hdri ,
i’m getting good shadows only while the light intensity is very high
but this overwhelms the hdri’s color with the light 's dull single tone color
is there any way to invert the light properties so that instead of intensity controlling the light falling on the mesh its controlling the darkness/opacity of the shadows ?
