Pls use 'Gradation' option in the Lighing group instead. Basically, the effects by the primitive's options (texture, specular, emboss...) are rotated by 'Angle'. the 'Lighiting' group's effects are processed after rotate.
that is a very important hint. It took me awhile to figure it out.
I would like to take a moment to thank you for your time making this. It has become a most valued tool for me.
