Control over lighting strength

It might be useful to have standard lighting strength settings to choose from as well, i.e. 40W / 60W / 100W / 150W etc.

Hmm. I totally see where you're coming from but LightUp is, from the start, not a physically based lighting tool. It observes basic power laws, reflection and specularity but its focus is on producing pleasing and believable results which you can explore in realtime.

In contrast, having support for IES lighting falloffs for example is straightforward. Definitely one for further thought and experimentation as we progress LightUp.

the easy availability of ies files would definitely make its implementation in LU a great feature.
