View Full Version : Excluding objects from lights

04 April 2004, 10:42 PM
Is there a way of excluding/including objects from lights similar to the function in 3ds MAX?

I cant seem to find anything in the lights *(edit) option dialogue box which does this.

There is similar function in XSi also, but it works on a per-light level, not camera.

Look in the manual under:

Light and shadows-->selective lights

make a group of objects you want to be lit by a certain light , open the explorer, open the stack on your light and find the "associated light" node and add them there , then open your light ppg and find the option that says "inclusive/exclusive" toggle this for desired effect ,(oh yeah and this is in the manual"
