ViewLight and Directional Light ..

Nov 29, 2010 at 9:33 AM

Hi again, when i try to use  4 ViewLights with SL 3 on Xp pc machine and Orthographic camera..

the light flickers when rotating 3dobject, is this a bug or am i misusing this kind of light anyway ?

Also when trying 4 DirectionalLights the lightning get ignored, causing black surfaces
should this light work in a different mode or isn't it simply implemented yet ?

I'd recommend only having one ViewLight. 

A ViewLight is basically a directional light, but will always have its direction calculated from the View, so adding multiple of those will only add the same light with the same direction multiple times.


That being said, you should be able to add as many lights as you want without it falling over. Could you give me the details about the 4 directional lights, all their properties - so I can set up something similar.
