IES files

Recommended Posts

The manual notes that Z can work with IES files in the creation of accurate custom lights.  I don't yet see how to do this.  Does Z import the IES file and attach it to a custom light, or do I merely note and transfer the parameters?

From light type drop down choose custom.

Under parameters tab choose intensity distribution.

Click load and choose ies file


It is a little easier with the Maxwell plugin but with the custom light type for formZ you can edit the profile of the ies file and save  your custom settings.

This is really useful when you want a very specific shape and falloff.
