What are the max no. of light objects in an open GL rendering?

Recommended Posts

I'm working on an office interior and I want to have up to 24 individual light sources in the project. I am showing the work in Open GL. I understand that this will exceed the maximum number of light objects. Is there a work around? Maybe making lights symbols?

@Andrew Pollock, I think you're stuck with the 8 as long as you're using OpenGL...sorry.  Artistic Renderworks "Cartoon" might get you close to an OpenGL rendering and you're not limited to quantity of lights

Unfortunately only open GL lets me move around my model in real time. That feature combined with screen sharing is how I communicate with clients remotely.
