Infinite Plane for Scrim Lights

The new Scrim Lights allow a truly photographic approach to studio lighting. The limitation of the Scrim lights is that you are projecting a light onto a scrim the size of a light. Sometimes this is limiting and you want to project light onto a huge scrim, for example, if you were uplighting onto the scrim, the light would fall off over a large distance. Turn on the new Infinite Plane setting for 3D-mapped lights on the HDRI map, and the Scrim Light will now project light onto an infinitely large scrim plane. This enables the lighting to fully fall off to black so that the lighting effect always has a soft edge and is unconstrained. This feature enables new soft and physically correct lighting effects.
