Windows through to a HDRI map

In this demo we light a still life shot using Window Gobo lights. We then use Composites to use those windows as a mask through to an outdoor HDRI map. This provides window lights that can be perfectly placed in the reflections, with the character of the outdoor HDRI map showing in these reflections and coloring the light. The outdoor HDRI map can be rotated or changed to alter the lighting effect.
