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"

Do static lights support IES profiles?

Do static lights support IES profiles? Because when i switch a light to static the light profiles section becomes greyed out and unclickable...

Hi!

Why not? :)

Switch your light to Stationary or Movable mode. Apply IES profile. Switch the light to Static and build light.

So basically your saying even though the option for ies is greyed out and unclickable in static.. if i apply the ies while its movable or stationary... it will use the ies when i switch it back to static?

It's confusing, but you have to pass through dynamic or stationary to set up the IES profile, but it will work with static nonetheless. There's a mention in the documentation somewhere that IES with static lights may introduce some artifacts, but in my experience it has worked well so far.
