Cylinder lights are a great way to add striking accent lighting to any room, providing bursts of quality light while remaining unobtrusive. These fixtures can be used in a variety of different commercial and residential applications. Using LEDs, these lights are an energy efficient and environmentally conscious solution.
These lights are commonly found in restaurants, theaters, hospitals, and retail stores. Many homeowners also use them in foyers, living rooms, and decks to illuminate their space with a burst of quality light.
A cylinder light is a surface-mounted light that can be adjusted in various ways to produce the desired effect. These can include adjusting the Radiance, Position, Rotation, Shadow Type, Samples, and Cylinder Radius and Length.
The Radiance attribute controls the intensity of the light, and uses a physically accurate model where the brightness falls off as the inverse of the distance squared. Increasing the radius and length of the cylinder also increases the Radiance, but at a lower rate.
Position is a numeric value that determines the position of the light item in XYZ space. This can be helpful when setting up the fixture if you want it to appear in a certain place in your scene, or to match other elements in your scenes.
Rotation allows you to set the rotation angle of your light item, and can help you make it align with other lights in your scene. You can also set a Time Offset, which is the amount of frames by which you want your light to be delayed or run ahead of the target item.
