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"

As suggested in the forum post, you will have to use VXGI or LPV to get the effects you are looking for with dynamic lighting or fake dynamic LEDs etc. by using point/spotlights. You could also fake the shadow light effect on the floor I think but from what I see, your studio does not have the technical department and you should refrain to dynamic lighting solutions like VXGI or LPV, although they surely come with other drawbacks.
