View Full Version : Light map in maya

10-20-2004, 10:17 PM
Hi guys and girls! I have a question about lightmaps, Ive heard its some smart setup in Max when you create lightmaps, you assign the "light" to specific areas, or something. But how do you create a lightmap in maya? Ive searched the forum and have read that you create lightmaps bye baking the light? Anyone please wants to write a quick step by step tutorial?

Thanks Megaa

I know you can set the area you want to light in the spotlight attributes... let's check the F1 doc for that... it could be applied to other light types.
