Did I imagine it or can you turn a poly into an area light? (not luxigons) I am sure there were some light plugins that I somehow have lost and now can't find on the web? dp lights possibly?

Also, I am working on an interior, in order to get enough GI into the windows in order to suitably light up the room, my radiosity is pretty high, however this really blows out the window sills and window frames, is there a technique? ( other than removing unseen walls etc to allow more light in).

Thanks in advance for any help.

yup... DP light (DPcustom light).

And ur radiosity is overblown due to using the incorrect colour space... switch to the sRGB preset in options.

Thanks rebelhill. Don't suppose you know if the plugin is still available? I have done some searches and can't seem to find it anywhere.

I'll try the colour space change thanks. Haven't really started using this feature yet but sounds like now is the time.

Zardoz I agree with you.

Thanks again.
