When you dim lights in a 3D view for rendering, the settings are saved as part of the view properties, and the lights are dimmed for that view only. The dimmed light settings do not affect rendered images for any other 3D views.
To dim lights
- Open the 3D view to render.
- Define render settings.
See Defining Render Settings.
- In the Rendering dialog, under Lighting, for Scheme, select a setting that includes artificial lights.
- Click Artificial Lights.
- In the Artificial Lights dialog, in the Dimming column, enter dimming values for light groups or individual lighting fixtures.
Enter a value between 0 and 1 to indicate the relative amount of dimming. A value of 1 means that the light is completely on (not dimmed). A value of 0 means that the light is completely dimmed (off).
If a lighting fixture is a nested family that contains multiple light sources but is not shared, you cannot dim individual light sources in the fixture. See Sharing a Lighting Fixture Family
- Click OK.
- To see the effects of dimming the lights, render the image.
See Creating the Rendered Image.
