    Elongated Spot Light

    For some reason my spotlight is elongated. I don't know how it got that way and I was wondering if someone could tell me why?

    Do you mean the actual object? Maybe you changed the scale of it.

    I am talking about the light itself. I moved it out of the picture and added a new spotlight which came out the normal size.

    yeah - I'm guessing you changed the scale by accident too. Check the numeric field in the lower left hand corner after clicking on the light and then click on the modify--->stretch.

    Size, Stretch, and Squash are grayed out. Am not quite sure what you mean by numeric field other than in lower left corner XYZ or HPB.

    Change it to an area light, change the scale, change it back to a spot. Should work.

    If Lens Flare is enabled, is Anamorphic Distorion also enabled? If it is, and if it has a greater than 1 value, this would cause it to elongate.
