hi ,

im trying to write a script to set the number of photons a light emits

for($thislght in $allmylights){

string $lightatstringv = $thislght +".photonIntensity" ;
setAttr $lightatstringv 2;


however it sets it to the desired intensity and then immediately changes it back,

other light attributes can be set this way, so why do phontons no worky ?
