*batch vray geometry shape attr adding/removing/editing
*light creation (directional,point,spot,area(mental ray) vrayRect,vrayDome,vrayIES,vraySphere(vray)
*user input values for light creation are retained until UI is closed, allowing multiple light types to be created with the same values

*visual outliner contains light soloing, duplicating,deleting and selection for easy movement, and light editing
*visual outliner has optimized HDRI, light texture adding (creates file node,2dplacement) when useHDRI(dome light) or useRect(vrayRect light) are enabled, if disabled (deletes both file and 2dplacement to clean up scene)
