Light and Shading

Lighting

The starting lighting setup to use when this is opened in Acrobat Reader.

Unchanged

When set to Unchanged this button will not change the lighting at all. It will leave the 3D View in its current lighting mode when this button is pushed. But having this, and shading, set to Unchanged it will allow the ability to trigger multiple animations using multiple buttons for a 3D view, without having them visibily change the look of the rendering.

It would be advised to have a separate button to change just the lighting or shading for your 3D View if desired.
