Re: Photo-video rendering plug-in
This takes lighting in SH3D to a new level.
It does indeed. Quite amazing. Congratulations and thanks, enkonyito! Without yet having had much time to experiment, it seems to me that the new light types can give softer illumination with fewer light sources, and that rendering (therefore?) will be faster. Looking forward to testing further even if I suspect I shall have to rely on examples and intructions to make full use of your work.

Forgive me for asking a couple of what probably may be silly questions/wishes:

  • does the renderer rely on the description field to determine the type?
    description#1=PointLight type
    description#2=TriangleMeshLight type

  • Would adding a planIcon# simplify placement of the different lights in the 2D view?
  • Could also having a TriangleMeshLight with other colours be useful?
    Something closer to incandecent (lightSourceColor#2=#BB9854) maybe?
