Turning off the sun and shadows

Hello All:

Ever since I have been using AC25 my 3D views are distracting. What happening is that when viewed in 3D sides to the west are darker in color or black and the sides to the east show as bright surfaces (whatever color). I would like to know if there is a setting where all sides appear to be on the side where the sun is. The problem with shadows is that they create viewing issues. Some objects have a "no shadow" option but not everything like walls. Is there a generic setting that I can set or release to control shadows for all object?




I have Contribution to Ambient set to 0... which is brighter than when set to 100...

Hello Ling:

Tried what you said and it offered some improvement but not what I was hoping for. I would consider this thread completed as it is obvious what I am looking for is not possible in AC today. Maybe in the future.


Thanks to all who replied.
