    Point Light – A point light is like a bare light bulb. The light goes out in all directions. I often use this light to replicate the effect of light sources in fittings.

  • cadmovie1601_02 – Outdoor Lighting – Heliodon

    Heliodon – The Heliodon tool is similar to the Set Sun Position command. Vectorworks places a specific Heliodon object whose parameters can be adjusted in the Object Info palette. This makes it much more flexible than the Set Sun Position command, allowing you to change the time of the day…

  • Vectorworks Tip 361 – Light Falloff

    As you move away from a light source the intensity of the light falls off. The actual amount that falls off is another physics concept known as the inverse square law. In simple terms as you double the distance from the light, the intensity of the light goes down by…

  • Interactive Workshops January 2016 (1601) – Outdoor Lighting

    Rendering is a fun art of using Vectorworks and in the past we have covered lighting (1502), but we covered it from the point of view of interior and architectural lighting. This manual is about exterior lighting, which suggests that we should be looking at nighttime lighting for architectural and…

  • Vectorworks Tip 358 – Color Temperature for Lights

    When you create a light in Vectorworks you have the ability to change the colour. One of the settings is to use colour temperature. The colour temperature is physics concept that relates the colour of the light to the temperature of the surface radiating the light (in degrees Kelvin). In…
