In order to insert the Point Light in a specific position should I manage the x,y,z positions or there are ather ways? For exaple can I add the Point Light onto a reference point ?

Great quick tutorial! While I am familiar with light sources, I've never experimented with the Fog. Thanks for the design inspiration!
