Sun looks too shiny on light blue sky
Hi there!

If I set the sky color to light blue (almost light grey), then the sun looks strange. It looks too shiny, and it grows because of his lightness to 3-4 time bigger, than the original size. I set the glow to 0, but the same problem.
I using atmospheric sky. Somebody knows the reason?

Ezequel: The sun's size is okay, I meant grows because of its outer brightness, so not real size, but it looks like a big bright.
Tottel: I tried with turned off hdr, but I get the same.

Just try it out in the Day-Night Cycle tutorial:

Turn of the clouds.
Change the tl array's 6,8,12 and 15 hours to this values:

Code:
{ 6, Col( 97,113,136), Col(160,190,200)},
{ 8, Col(110,136,152), Col(160,190,200)},
{12, Col(121,142,164), Col(160,190,200)},
{15, Col(121,137,154), Col(160,190,200)},

RE: Sun looks too shiny on light blue sky
Hi,I tried your values, and saw the problem, especially when the clouds are turned off.
I think some of your values are too high: you should replace the 160,190,200 values: Try values like 70, 110, 150 or something like that. Let me know if it works.
