Changing direction of a light on a mac

Post by duttonpf »

I am sure this has been answered but I must be using the wrong search terms to find it.

I have lights with beams that become visible when I hover over them. I am supposed to be able to grab hold of a beam and change its direction but I cannot remember how to do it. I am using a Macbook. What combinations of keys and mouse clicks do I use to move the beam to light a different part of my model?

Okay... I never got answer to this one but I have now discovered it by reading more carefully the tutorial on the Light-up website.

Once the beam (penumbra I think they call it) is showing you have to hold down Alt as well as the RIGHT mouse button. Then as you move around the model, the beam will follow the mouse pointer.

Hope this helps someone else.
