DIRECTIONAL LIGHTS – OVERVIEW

 

The Directional Lights tool simplifies distant light creation and management.

We support Arnold, Redshift and Renderman.

This tool is commonly used in combination with the HDRI Skydome Browser tool.

See the other light pages for Area Lights , Light Presets , and Edit Lights .

 
 

THE PROBLEM

 

Managing directional light settings in the Attribute Editor is cluttered with settings. Each renderer uses varying terminology for the same functionality.

 
 

THE SOLUTION

 

The Directional Lights tool simplifies, and adds the light controls into a dynamic user interface.

We’ve added workflow improvements such as,

– Place reflection of a light by clicking on a mesh
– Selecting/switch to different lights in your scene
– Opening Maya’s Light Editor
– Drop Light from the current camera position
– Easy color temperature controls
