Sketch an Toon - focussed light sources (area/spot) creating infinite light in the back


Hey there,
Im working on a short animated movie but struggling with a huge issue I cant´t seem to wrap my head around.

Im having a definite need for spot / area lights leaving light beams on the scene objects.

My issue is that these light sources not only create a great lightbeam infront, but also light the ENTIRE back of thearea / spotlight, means everything behind it is lit at almost 100%…

Am I doing something wrong?

Im happy for any tips!

Use a restriction tag on what the light affects.
