Light Object obscuring drawing

Recommended Posts

I'm not even sure how to describe this, here's a screenshot to illustrate what my issue is.

I want to get rid of as much of the globe as possible.  It shows up in my Renderworks as well.

Is this a scale issue? Currently I'm at 1:5000 (it's a pretty large space that was part of a larger building).

Which light object are you using?


Also, if you change the Display Light Objects setting to "Only in wireframe" lighting objects will not display in OpenGL, Fast Renderworks, etc. 


If you change it to "Never" the light objects will disappear entirely from the drawing which may only be useful temporarily. (You could still edit lights through the visualization palette)

Thanks! This gives me some work-arounds.

It's not a stage instrument, its an architectural light for high bay factory use.
