Hi.

I've progressed to work on 22_TheCrate_iS3.mov of the 3D Garage course and have a question.

My light properties are not doing what Ablan's properties are doing, so I would like to ask for help in finding the setting that I missed in my setup.

Attached is a screen print of my light properties (left), and the light properties as they work for Ablan in the course (right).

I have just copied the original and only light on the set, pasted it into the scene, renamed it, changed it to an Area Light, and then that's where I get stuck. Ablan continues to change the color of his light, but the color of my light is grayed out.

What setting do I need to change to make my color palate for my area light active?

Thanks

I should add that when I select my original light, which was also changed to an Area light, I am able to edit the color of it.

You have an envelope on your light. Remove the envelope and all should be good. Hold the Shift key down and click on the E button to remove the envelope.

That worked, and I have now read about the Envelope feature in the LW Help.

Thank you.
