View Full Version : LFS problems - please test

04-04-2013, 02:55 AM
I have serious problems with Load From Scene (LFS) and loading lights (i thought it's IES only but now realized it's spherical also (and who knows what more)).

I create lot of street/facade and chandeliers lighting renders and procedure/workflow is to setup lights in empty scene (so i can test/render faster to adjust light intensity) and then use LFS into busy scene but for some reason some (or all in my todays test) just don't work anymore. Intensity/diffuse are ON but nothing gets emitted so i have to re-add light manually in my busy scene to make it work ?

Here is one of examples video and scene for test so can someone try it ?


cheers and thanks

Try doing the LFS then immediately saving off the scene file (to an incremental scene version number, of course) then reloading the scene. Lots of small things have been broken since 9.6, they must be (at least partially) rewriting a lot of the code in the background.

Thnaks, yes that's helping it, weird but that helps after reloading newly created scene. Crazy stuff, still it must be a BUG and not intented workflow.
