Places a new spot light.

  1. Click View > Photo-Realism > New Spot Light. You also can select Spot Light on the Photo-Realism toolbar.

  2. Enter the point where the light should be placed.

    Placing 3D Points

  3. Enter a second point to indicate the light's interest point.

    This second point is used to determine both the lighting direction and also the light's falloff distance (used for the MicroStation, Fa-st, and Slow attenuation effects).

  4. In the New Light dialog box, enter a name for the new source light.

  5. Modify any other properties as needed.

  • The glyph color of a source light matches the color of the light being cast (as specified on the New Source Light > Effects tab).

  • You cannot change the type of light after placement. To change a spot light to a point light, for example, you must delete the spot light, and then place a new point light.
