Soft focus light?


Recommended Posts

The setttings are always greyed out when a light object is being used by a spotlight instrument and you can only adjust beam angle from the OIPIn the OIP Set Field Angle to the size of beam and set Beam Angle to say ½ the size. That will give you a degree of softness to a circular beam. Shuttered beams cannot be softened to my knowledge although setting them to soft shadows helps slightly.


I hope that answers your question.

Sadly with shutters and gobos you can't soften as in real life. I go to photoshop and blur gobo textures there. This would be a really great enhancement to to Spotlight. The ability to "add frost" would also be very very useful.

How do you export the gobo in order to work with it in photoshop. Thanks.
