LED Tape Light

I am getting precisely this effect when trying to add a rope light to a trey ceiling. I've upped the max number of lights from the previous default (I think it was set to 20), but it's still looking like this. Is it not possible to use the rope light to effectively simulate LED strip (tape)?


Try adding Chief's Rope light instead , I think you can do it right from the Trey Ceiling DBX now....

Nowadays, there`s quite an extensive selection of LED strips, so I don`t see the point of making them yourself... unless it`s a hobby =) I, for example, love strips that seem to shimmer in color and for me I chose led strip light that synchronizes with music. Love the club atmosphere! Btw, about the installation, I want to mention that the main factor affecting the quality of attachment is the cleanliness of surface on which it`ll be attached. Sooner or later poor quality strip can start to fall off from dirty surface in different places. I installed my strip previous year and they stuck firmly till now.

      Have done some experimenting but it is unclear to me what the intensity setting is doing with rope lights and its interaction with light spacing.  Is the setting lumens per light, per foot, or for the  entire rope?

      I'm sort of new to CA and I've noticed that every time I go to set up my PBR it takes me FOREVER to get it looking good. This time however it has taken me forever to make it look good and I still cannot figure out how to fix this.
      Can someone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong, I find PBR to be so challenging.

      To make the emission of a material on a light source turn off when you switch off the light, you must select the Material Default Glass (Lights). 

      Are there any other materials that can behave like that, or is there any way to make more of this kind of default materials?
      I'm making a visual stage plot setup for my band, and I would like to be able to create spotlights with several colors or material types with this switchable behavior, but it seems like all lights ends up with the last setting I do for this Material Default.
      If any developers are reading this: Is this a feature that can be implemented in coming versions (I user CAPX12)?
