This might have a quick fix, but I've still got my training wheels on.
I've created a scene in Maya 2012- a hospital ward.
Around the room and pushed back is a large skybox which has clouds and whatnot.. You can see it animating through the windows of my scene.
I need a way to light the skybox without effecting the shadows/lights INSIDE my walls.
An ambient light seems to light it the best way, however it's just flooding the rest of my scene!
I'll post some render shots too
