Apply Lighting Effect box

Postby Leo Graywacz » Sat, Jul 11 2020, 1:05PM

When you click the eyeball icon you go into the pre-presentation mode. There are lighting effects that show shadows and such.

I like this mode for presentation because it eliminates the long drawn out process of applying lighting and trying to make everything look normal and lit properly, which is very time consuming.

I assume there is no way to tell the computer where the light source is for this function. It always seems to come from the back left corner. So anything on the right side of the kitchen in darker and in shadow. Is there a way to make it so we could choose the light direction? And if there isn't could it be a new feature? :beer:

Leo,

There isn't a way to pick where the lighting is in the view prior to the full presentation view. At the top left is a check box for Apply Lighting Effects. If you uncheck that all the shadows seem to be removed. Does that help any?
