SphericalHarmonics.EvaluateSphericalLight Method ()
Evaluates a spherical light and returns spectral spherical harmonic (SH) data.

Evaluates a spherical light and returns spectral SH data. There is no normalization of the intensity of the light like there is for directional lights, so care has to be taken when specifying the intensities. This will compute three spectral samples; redOutput will be returned, while greenOutput and blueOutput may be returned.
On the sphere with unit radius as shown, direction can be specified simply with theta, the angle about the z-axis in the right-handed direction, and phi, the angle from z.
The following equations show the relationship between Cartesian (x, y, z) and spherical (theta, phi) coordinates on the unit sphere. The angle theta varies over the range of 0 to 2 pi, while phi varies from 0 to pi.
The method call is invalid. For example, a method's parameter might contain an invalid value.
