Lamp IPO

I don’t know why I don’t know this but how do you set an IPO for changing the energy on a lamp?

Select lamp, open ipo editor, click drown down and change to lamp, select energy and ctrl click to add key frames in the workspace.

hey thanks!

With the lamp selected,
Hit the i key over the material buttons window, or change the IPO mode from Object to Lamp.

[Andrew beat me] but hitting i also works well too.

Wow, I never knew the i key was context sensitive. Thanks!

If your using GLSL it becomes a lot harder to animate the energy or RGB levels and so on. I believe its possible, but you need to use python. If your not using GLSL then of course its easy, just use the techniques mentioned above.

Yeh it works over a lot of different windows, pretty cool!
