Vray 3.0 Question
show user profile  9krausec
I was wondering if anyone knew if it might now be safe to scale rectangular lights up with 3ds/Maya transform tools?

I've always found it sort of annoying to go in and modify the values to change the scale of vray lights to ensure physical accuracy. I don't suppose anyone here knows if this has changed with vray 3.0?

As far as I know, grabbing and scaling the light does not give strange results like it used to in the past. It used to do something that made the reflections get extra bright, or something along those lines.

I'm almost 100% positive that is no longer an issue, so it's fine to grab them and scale them with no unexpected results.

Just out of pure habit, I still enter the size values in the light parameters rather than grabbing and scaling the light. But that's just out of habit. -
