I’ve built myself this neat spaceship mesh and its cool but I WANT lights on the side.
I’ve combed the internet for hours looking but the problem is all the tutorials are for lighting an ENTIRE object, all I want to do is light up one face of my mesh. Not the whole thing.
If I select a face and I apply the Material with the halo light effect I want to use, nothing happens. I can only create lights by adding an entire new object and then applying the material to it.
I would be ok with adding new object every time I wanted a light, except I am trying to animate and it is near darn impossible to keyframe every individual object to match the rotation of the main object.
There must be a way to either parent or make one piece of my mesh light up. But how?
Please explain step by step. And if you slap a link down for me make sure its what I need. Because I’ve spend a lot of time already finding useless tutorials.
