Creating Lights

You can create multiple lights, but multiple lights can substantially reduce realtime performance and add to rendering times.

To create lights:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click Project > Scenes > New Light.
    • In the Palette, on the Scenes tab, click Add > New Light.
    • In the Palette, right-click in the Scenes tree and click New Light.
  2. Select one of the following:
    Option Description
    Pick Target Defines the point on the model where you want the light to shine. Pick a point in the viewport.
    Pick Position Defines the source of the light. The light is placed at the selected location and points in a direction normal to the selected surface. This option is especially useful when adding interior lights. Pick a point in the viewport.
    Match Current Camera Matches the light to the current camera position and direction.
  3. Set options in the Palette.
