Under-cabinet puck lights: Recommend light settings for best renders

Recommended Posts

What do you do for this?  I want to get realistic-looking light effects under the wall cabinets and atop the counters.

 

I turned down the wattage, but haven't played with the cone angle or drop-off rate.  Shadows, no.

Here is an example showing two under cabinet light configurations. The left uppers have spots adjusted to look like LED strips, the right bank uses spots to represent pucks. The difference is the cut off angle and number of lights, LED has 180 and double the light count, pucks are 90. Both have their direction set to -55 to angle them towards the backsplash. You may also need to play with the material settings for the backsplash and counter top to get the right level of reflectivity.
