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"

How can I have hard banded lights?

Hey everyone, a little lighting question!alt text

this is a picture of some arbitrary point lights and geometry shown through the "Light Complexity" viewmode. Is there a way to achieve this sort of banded hard lights?

The closest I've gotten so far is using to spot lights with inner and outer cone the same size but surely that isn't very optimal:alt text
