Wow...that's about the best looking LED lighting I've seen Chief produce.

 

I can't give you any pointers on what to do differently...looks GREAT!

Thanks Hamlin. I am okay with how it looks, but was hoping for some suggestions on a way to achieve this look with out using so many lights. I have over 250 lights illuminating the soffit!

Actually they recently had a video on this -  I think you are on right track, but perhaps too bright in your example (but very good overall).  If you want better lighting you might be better to use a full render app.

I will try that, should save me from having to use as may lights.

Thanks Johnny!

As well I have a small light shelf vs. the large ones in the example video, so you still see the "origin" of the lights, meaning that I would still have to add a lot more lights to not get that effect.
