No Light On

Recommended Posts

I've posted a topic about this on the Spotlight forum, but I'm assuming the people in the RW camp could help me as well.

According to the manual every lighting device should have a Light On option under its Edit parameters that would allow me to render the beam of light from the unit. I can't seem to find this, instead I did find the "Draw Beam" and "Draw Beam as 3D Solid" checkboxes that don't really help me because they actually don't light anything and they create shadows!

Am I looking in the wrong place, or missing something?

Where are your lighting devices coming from? Could it be that you have some lighting devices that don't actually have a light object contained in them?

Have you looked at the Visualization Palette and see if you can turn them on from there?

OK so I Ctrl-Clicked on a light, and under Edit Light I found On/Off radio buttons as well as options for color, intensity, etc. Sadly, it doesn't seem to be lighting anything at the focus point I have set.

I'm confused...

Final Quality. I've found some lights on the visualization palette and turned them on, and given them a focus position, but I still see nothing on the surface. Do I have to turn the light and the beam on at once?

Thanks guys

The surface and the light aren't by any chance on a different layer?

If they are, just make a VP - either Design or Sheet Layer.
