If one is to get serious about using Radiance I have to strongly suggest that they read:
"Rendering with Radiance - The Art and Science of Lighting Visualization: Greg Ward Larson and Rob Shakespeare: Morgan Kaufmann Publishers 1998: San Francisco, Ca: ISBN 1-55860-499-5"
I think all question you have will be answered. The only problem is you'll then have a million questions you've never thought about before. It's a necessary evil.
If you have specific questions you need "immediate" answers to, feel free to e-mail me. I'm not a guru, however, I've done this for a while and I might have the answer. Also, I know Charles Erhlich at LBL is very friendly and willing to help.
For yours, and anyone else's, information, if I can ever find the time to get around to it, I will have a Radiance discussion group and info exchange on my web site listed below. It'll probably be next year before I get to it. Sometime after Rhapsody comes out and I get a "total-mac" Radiance enviorment.
