Add Spotlights And Cameras

Brighten your scenes with spotlights!

Shade's default lighting is fine for most things, but can be a bit flat. To add a little pizzazz to your Shade renders, from the Tools menu, select Create>Spotlight, then click and drag in one of the viewports to create your light as shown-

- then use the Translate and Rotate functions to get it positioned just right. Do a test render and use the Object Info tool in the Aggregate palette to adjust the intensity and softness as shown-

Add as many spots as you need to get your scene sparkling!

You can also create multiple cameras in the same way- and these cameras will show up in the viewports, so they're easy to keep track of.
