In the future version will be more Pre-build scene presets: medium, large scale, car rendering, etc... New version now on development (and for mental ray :) ).

Pre-Build Scenes

Thank you very much! May be in next build you make more functionality. I really like your combination of parameters in Pre-Build Scenes, but if i have big object, greater than we have in presets, then i am disharmonize all light sources. I'd love to have a directly proportional change in all dimensions of the scene. Common uniform scale for lights, cameras and platform.

All sizes and parameters of objects you can change on an appropriate tab.
