Linking sun position and material light intensity

Object graphs are an easy way to control object or material properties with properties of other scene objects. You'll learn an example in this video.

With the object graph functionality, you can create dependencies between different objects in a scene. In this example, Vladimir Chopine shows how to control the luminosity (emission strength) of a material for simulating a light bulb with the position of the sun. When the sun sets, the light turns on and vice versa.
