Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Office Ceiling Lighting Material

Hello :)

I am trying to setup Office ceiling lighting (example). I guess that's have something to do with materials + lights.

Tossing Emissive material on mesh gives nice glowing but contribution in overall lighting of scene in zero alt text

Any suggestions and samples would be much appreciated :)

Its actually a new feature that appears in 4.6. its still sort of a work in progress, but its getting there.

"Turn this on using the new “Use Emissive For Static Lighting” option on shadow-casting components with Mobility set to “Static”. When enabled, Lightmass generates baked direct lighting from emissive texture sources. Note: this is a fast but limited version of emissive lighting. Only direct lighting is computed but build time is not affected. It is best used in scenes that have other light sources."
