PLACE REFLECTION – OVERVIEW

 

Place Reflection is a tool that positions a light by clicking on the surface of an object.

The light is placed automatically so that it’s reflection appears at the clicked position on the model.

You can hold control (or shift) and click-drag and the light will be moved closer or further from the surface.

Place Reflection is also available inside the Area Light and Directional Light tools.

THE PROBLEM

 

It’s difficult to place light reflections on objects, for highlights such as car reflections or eye highlights.

 
 

THE SOLUTION

 

Place Reflection automatically places the light so it’s reflection can be seen on the model.
