I use an array of 10 small linear lights to simulate an LED stripe.
The lights are grouped. When the group is selected, I change “Intensity” and “Color” in the properties panel for all lights simulatanously. So far so good.
But, … no matter if I set the intensity to 100, to 1 or to 0, the image is brutally overexposed and cycles seem to ignore the intensity settings.
I tried to set the color of the lights from white (default) to dark grey, black, and even red just to try if it makes any difference. … Nope. Settings are completely ignored.
Just tested with a single light: Same behavior…
In addition, sometimes the lights are ignored (as in “switched off”), although visible/active. When I toggle through Shaded, Rendered, Shaded and back to Raytraced, voila, the lights are suddenly “switched on” without any other actions involved. Just happen after closing and reopening the file.
I really enjoy working with V6, so many cool new and useful features. I just upgraded 10 licences for my team. Unfortunately, the last hour trying some quick and dirty rendering experiments made me realize that V6 is not ready for prime time in some uses cases. (See me other bug report from half hour ago)
Maybe this is just me or my system. Fixes much appreciated (workarounds too, still I’d prefer fixes
Pls find my system infos below:
