Lighting PropertyManagers

You can modify the intensity, color, position, and direction of lights. The light properties that are available depend on the type of light source and whether PhotoView 360 is added in.

To display this PropertyManager:

  1. In the DisplayManager, click View Scene, Lights, and Cameras .
  2. Do one of the following:
    • When PhotoView 360 is not added in, right-click SOLIDWORKS Lights and click Edit All Lights.
    • When PhotoView 360 is added in, it is recommended that you edit the primary PhotoView 360 lighting, which comes from an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image that surrounds the scene spherically, creating realistic light and reflections. Right-click PhotoView 360 Lights and select Edit Primary PhotoView 360 Lighting .

      To edit individual lights, expand PhotoView 360 Lights , right-click any light below Primary PhotoView 360 Lighting (including lights that are not on), and select Edit All Lights.
