problem with shadows and fog.

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

I can't get a lighting device to cast shadows or light fog.

I have a one colour renderworks background with "lit fog" and "receive shadows" ticked.

I have a fixture from the spotlight library, it texture is default instrument texture.

I have a fucus point and I can see the footprint of the light. I get a solid cone if I choose "draw beam", I know the light is there, but no shadows and no fog.

Can anyone help?

Cheers,

Steve.

Turn on the light in the Visualization Palette, not in the OIP. The OIP "Draw Beam" only shows the edges of the field and beam angles.

Hi Michaelk.

I'm not sure if this solves my problem. I can use the visualisation palette to create a new light source, and this one casts shadows. But my moving light still is not. I want to be able to use fixtures from the spotlight library.

Hmmm

All your spotlight fixtures should appear in the Vis Palette.

Can you post a file with one of the fixtures you are using?

You're there.

Turn off draw beam. Render in fast, final, or custom renderworks. (not Open GL)
