Emitter material & IES File

Post by smalyszka » Fri Jan 02, 2015 3:27 pm

I don't see an option to add an IES file to a material with emitter applied. Trying to use an IES file for LED tape lighting or any other type of strip lighting for up-lighting ceilings and coves. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks SM

IES lights in LightUp work with PointLightSource components.

You can make a strip of light emitting material by marking it as Emitter - keep in mind light power is lumen/m^2, so a tiny area emitter, gives tiny light output.
