    This product contains an assortment of Unreal Engine assets which can be imported into a pre-existing project of your choice.

Orbit Lights is an editor utility widget that lets you pick target objects and place lights around it. Quickly adjust every light's position, intensity, color, etc., in one central place - no property hunt in the details panel is needed. This is especially useful for (portfolio) renderings because you can look through the render camera and adjust every light via the widget! Light setups can also be stored as presets and used for different objects (to use the presets across various Unreal projects, manually duplicate the preset file and move it to the other project).
