Everything Element 3D belongs here

request: more lights

Postby dasben on 12/5/2017, 8:44 am


I noticed, that element just supports 8 lights.
but if you are creating a complex scene, like a town or just one street, 8 lights are not enough.

this is a wish for future versions and feedback from a pro user.

thanks ben

Hello dasben,

this an OpenGL restriction >>max. 9 lights (E3D = 8 lights+ambient light).

the 8 light threshold has always been very frustrating

there are ways that you can simulate the effects of distant lights by using material transfer modes and PNGs
