Light Shining Through Solid Objects


Recommended Posts



I have been struggling with these settings to no avail. I have a puck light that shines right through 2 layers of counter top all the way to the floor. The counter top material is set to 'general material' and I have tried other settings to stop this issue but it hasn't helped. What am I doing wrong?

      I have been watching the video tutorials on exterior rendering primarily the lighting features and effects .  Can anyone tell me about  PARALLEL lighting placed facing the buildings exterior??? I can't locate  anywhere.  Cad arrow does not convert ...also where do I find the lighting for the interior rooms that show a yellow glow .  I've tried the electrical but only see the auto  LGIHT for ceiling which is a light fixture not a glow.
      Its probably so easy but for the life of me I can't figure it out.  My exterior renders are not bad but would be more affective with the features available in said video    
      Much thanks

      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.

      I'm trying to get a wall mounted light inside a skylight well.   So far I figured I could put it on a wall nearby and specify the offset/height to get it to "appear" in the more or less correct place.  This kind of works, but I'm wondering if anyone has a more legit way of doing this?  I'm hopeful to get the light to automatically tilt with the slope of the well.
