Recessed Lights not showing up in Camera Views

Recommended Posts

I've placed some recessed lights on the ceiling.  They will not show up in the camera view.  When they do sometimes show, the fixture itself will not glow so you can't tell the source of the light.  I used the eyedropper tool to paint the trim from bone to white, but was careful not to paint the emitter.  Could this be the problem?  I also have some pendant lights that I have turned off and don't want emitting.  Attached is the file.  I'd appreciate someone taking a look.  Thanks, Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Your camera has to be in the same room as the lights for them to show-glow.

If you start with the camera in the room then move/pan out to the required position it will still work.

I changed the glass in on of the pendants to "lighting white" and moved the light source down to 55" so it is inside the shade, not above it.    I also set the number of light fixtures to be on to 100, from 20.
