Adding a Landscape Light

Well placed lighting can dramatically improve the appearance of your landscape during low light conditions. When viewing your landscape at sunrise, sunset, or in the evening, Realtime Landscaping Pro will automatically turn on the lights during a realtime walkthrough.

To add a landscape light:

1.   Click Add Light.

2.   Select the desired light by clicking the picture in the property window.

3.   Click to add the light. Hold Ctrl while you click to add more than one.

In addition to a wide variety of landscaping lights, Realtime Landscaping Pro also includes specialty lights, such as Japanese lanterns, torches, spotlights, and more. In the following example, the torches were added using the Landscape Light object. The porch lights were added using the House Light object.

Tips:

      Your lights will only come on during a realtime walkthrough when the time of day has been set to sunrise, sunset, or evening. See Environment Settings for more information.

      If grid snap is enabled, it might be difficult to place the light exactly where you want it. Press Ctrl+G to disable grid snap. See Snap Settings for more information.

      You can also add lights to houses. See Adding a House Light for details.

      You can scale and rotate your lights for more variety. See Scaling Objects and Rotating Objects for more information. (Note: Scaling a light does not change its brightness or area of influence.)
