I was in the process of baking the lighting of an interior when I discovered that LW's area lights aren't in fact tru area lights. I wondered whether anyone had come accross this problem. When placed close to the ground, the light just switches off, and as you if placed at a particular distance the hotspot appears round instead of square as true do. Also there is either alot of noise or what appears to be the hotspots from several pointlights The problem was very annoying when and totally screwed up my the perfect lighting I had.

Just wondering whether anyone else had come across this problem
