Lamp behind cloth


I’ve got a spot light inside say a tent. I’m wanting a little light to get out (through) to the surroundings, to be able to see silhouettes inside, and say some of the cloth pattern too.

Any ideas?

In the material settings for your cloth increase the Translucency value (in the Shading panel)

Thankyou, works a treat. Well, except shadows, but I can fake that…

I had tried this, but I had my sheet coloured pure red and my light pure green colour, so nothing showed up! Same happens for a pure blue light. I guess it’s about absorbency of absolute colours?
