Where's the light coming from?

Recommended Posts

Using X10 Premier....

 

In the ray trace there is light emitting brightly on the far right.

 

As one can see in my plan, this room is deep inside the building and no windows anywhere around. There is a second story with a roof.

 

The rendered view shows a bit of shadow on the far tight.

 

Can anyone suggest where this light is coming from and how can I avoid it?

 

Kind regards, Tamela

Toggle the sun "off" and set the sun intensity to "0" in the Ray Trace DBX and see if it goes away. If not then you have a rouge light or two somewhere in the plan.

Thank you, sunlight is off. I have all lighting turned off except what is seen (confirmed in ADJUST LIGHTS)

You could also put a roof on it.

I'm having trouble with unaccountable excess light with X10 RayTraces as well.  Has anyone else seen change of behavior with X10?

Yes, as mentioned, there is a second floor and a roof.

 

 

 

What about a Foundation ?  it's always a good idea to build a Roof and foundation , even if you don't need them for your particular project , other strange things can happen with "Light Bleed" in the scene .

 

And you've been here long enough to know to Post the plan by now :)   you'll get much better help, there's too much guessing otherwise....

I sent plan file into CA tech support and they could not supply an answer other than turn off sunlight -- which I had already done. 

 

Hoping they get enough questions they will look into further.

Would it be possible to post the plan. I'm curious as to what could be in there that is causing the light unexplained light.
