Is there a way to use the scene editor (or any way in LW) to Exclude say 100 objects from a light in one swipe?

(trying not to click the mouse 100 times in the Light Properties, Exclude)

Like you can do in the Scene Editors / Property / Object Render Flags to make an 1000 objects unseen by camera, all in one swipe.

THANKS

One way is to choose the objects you don't want to exclude then you press the right mouse button and select 'invert selection' in the popup menu. Now all objects that was not selected before is selected and the selected ones is unselected. I hope this helps.

There's a script that does it, called "Light Exclude" or something such.

It's a shame you actually need a third party script for it, though, especially since the script is far from flawless. Seriously, NewTek, just make light exclusions work on multi-selections!
