Creating a Custom Sun in the Sky Shader

In this last section of the Sky series, we'll be creating a more realistic sun than then the default one provided in the Sky Shader by using the Custom Sun feature. The technique shown uses two different types of lights to simulate a sun. Using light objects for custom sun's allows you to have more flexibility and control it the way your sun looks and lights the scene.
