Lux level calculation in Vectorworks / Renderworks

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Is there a way to get the lux levels given out by a custom light object / light objects in a scene?

I tried using the photometric grid however that looks to be just for spotlight fixtures and not for visualisation fixtures. 

Is this possible or are there any plugins that would allow this? 

In reality what I'm after is the lux level shown on surrounding surfaces based on the lights in the scene - so something similar to that of Dialux. I have an art installation that I'm working on and would like to know what light levels it provides to the location. - And yes I have tried using Dialux however due to the way the program is designed I didn't find it suited to custom fixtures (it is possible, in dialux.. its just painful at best).

Thanks all :)
