I have a lighting test model with: Layer 1 A stage mockup Layer 2 A single Lighting Device (Altman Micro) focused to the only Focus Point in the file, named "A" Layer 3 A 5x5 Photometric Grid surrounding the Focus Point A. The photo grid always displays values, always the same values, whenever the light device is present in the file, including: If the light is on or off (yes, refresh the grid) If the light layer is active or not (refresh the grid) If the light layer is visible or not, and active or not (refresh the grid) If I move the light & focus to the photo grid layer and toggle the light on/off (refresh the grid) The only ways I found to zero out photo grid: Delete the light from the the file and refresh the grid Change the light focus designation to a non existing focus name (eg no focus is named "0") and refresh grid Delete the focus point and refresh the grid Is that all expected? Shouldn't the photo grid values all revert to zero if the light is switched off eg via lighting palette, or the light is on an invisible layer? Doesn't really matter, I'm just exploring, but rather surprised. Or something I need to do differently? -B
Hi, Within spotlight, I would like to test lights at a luminous intensity that is less than their full value. The "Edit Light" - right click on light - opens a submenu of properties that also include an option for brightness with numerical input between 0-100%. If I set this to less than 100 and refresh my photometers (with draw beam selected) then the photometer value do not change. Any idea how to test lights at less than their 100% brigthness? Regards,
