Lighting option

Post by Deckstore » Sun Apr 30, 2017 9:16 pm

Hi there,

I've been using Raylectron for several years now. One challenge I have is with creating a deck riser light glow. Any recommendations or is it possible to add a dome type of glow as a new feature?

Can you post a real picture of the effect you're looking for?

This is the closest example I can find. Similar to Vray's Sphere lighting

oh I see, you mean the glare/glow around the light, the optic lens effect of the camera. Not currently but this is in the works for v5. However, you could save the render image with layers and in Photoshop for example, you can create that effect for the light layer and put all the layers together for the final image.
