Lighting individual objects

Hi, Is it possible to have a light illuminate certain objects in the scene but not others ?

Rhino’s renderer is not that elaborate…well the old one was too primitive, and the Cycles path-tracer…those kind of renderers are very “brute force realistic” and don’t go in on the override-every-setting-on-a-per-object-basis thing as I recall from old school CPU renderers like Brazil.

In the future we could make it possible to exclude objects from certain lights, but it is not currently possible.

Hi @Mike_A,

Could you elaborate a bit? Do you want to lose direct light or all reflected light as well? Are you seeking deliberately to create an unnatural effect? What’s the use case? Do you have a scenario you can post?
