View Full Version : Anybody Else Struggle With Lighting?
08-12-2004, 02:55 PM
Does anybody else have to spend lots of time just tweaking one little area so that the lighting fits properly? Between having coronas inside a light, having a blocking volume surrounding the non-transparent parts of the light, and then discovering that blocking volumes only cast a shadow of their wireframe, I've almost run out of ideas. I just want to know if I'm alone on this, or if this is a common problem.

I just despise setting the DrawScale on a corona to a low setting for a low corona, then having the light bulb icon in the editor get smaller too. One of the most annoying little things to find. :sour:

what i did in that case was stick 3 light sources around it in a circular pattern, and give them all corona's. It really looks decent. ;)

I'm still new to lighting, sort of, so can anyone tell me what are coronas, what their for, and the whole where to find it and settings.
Oh ya, I have light problems too.
