possibly a simple question but it has kept me buffled for two weeks now, so I decided to ask:

how can I set lighting mode to ambient?

I am trying to create images using a simple drawing style like exemplified in


p53 simple drawing or


but I don't find ambient lighting mode in the viewing tools - lighting menu. The only options given are lights (head light, 1, 2) or quality (normal, glossy).

I am using Chimera 1.5 build 30417 fir darwin 64bit, aqua on a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.6.6.

Many thanks in advance
