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"

Without looking at the material my best guess is that the material has an "Emissive Color" assigned.

The material is absolutely clean, I partially solved the problem by removing the light source that did not intersect and did not illuminate these objects, I'm very curious why that light source made these objects shine

Was it a directional light? those have infinite rays.

No, the light source that influenced the glow of the objects was spot light at number 1, and the room that lights up at number 2 :)alt text

can this be due to the fact that the walls that shine are created by this principle?
