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.
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!
