Meshlight turned on without emitting light

Post by Leandro Oliveira » Fri Oct 02, 2020 3:36 pm

Hi Guys!

Is it possible to have a meshlight which is turned on, but no light emission? I want to light my scene using a lamp inside Blender, giving a feeling that the light comes from the meshlight.

Just give the meshlight shader a small importance.

Thanks, Sharly! Can I give a value of zero?

If you do that your light mesh is going to be just black.
And there is no point of doing that.
Your main lights need to be set higher importance.
