I have 100 lights on a layer. I’d like to edit light settings via select all.
What I do: choose the lights layer, select all, click edit in vray, and then make changes to the fixture settings in vray.
What happens: The changes only affect a single light, although all the lights are highlighted as selected in rhino view. Vray changes its display settings for all the lights, but the new settings do not flow to all the lights in the Rhino. For example, if I “select all” for a layer of 100 lights and then click ‘edit in vray’ and then change the cone angle from 1.0 to .5 … then vray will report a cone angle of .5 for all 100 lights … however, vray will only render and rhino will only shrink the icon for cone angle for a single light … the remaining 99 lights will report a cone angle value of .5 in vray, but will actually continue to render a cone angle of 1.0.
What did i try: I tried to select multiple lights in the vray lights setting menu/list … vray will not allow me to select multiple lights in that list. I tried ungrouping all the lights. I made sure the lights were not coming in via a block. I tried both GPU and non-GPU modes.
It is a drag to go to each and every light to change light settings.
