[PlugIn] 3-Way Lighting Script

hi, yes, it’s in 2.79 in the add advanced objects menu addon, button is in the add menu/lighting sets

Ok I see it now. It is very well hidden. I was looking for it in the user preference dialog

Hi @Meta-Androcto (and @Schalla). Tri-Lighting was the main reason I used to activate Add Advanced Objects in Blender 2.79. Will Tri-Lighting be updated for 2.8 soon? It’s a very convenient way to add complete lighting to a scene.

It’d also be great if there were some more options, such as being able to have Area Lights by default.


hi, I’ll try too look soon. I made so many collections to celebrate 2.79 it’s hard to update them all at once.


That’s great, many thanks in advance, much appreciated!

sorry it took a while…

You da man, @Meta-Androcto, muchas gracias! :+1:

your welcome, It’s a good addon, helpful with fast set up lights, simple yet time saving. I was also looking at extending it to include colors and light types better but don’t have time atm. I hope you enjoy it.

I installed it on 2.8 , but I didn’t find it on object tool , can you upload a picture to show where can I find it on the panel ?

It is only avaible via the search function.
(You must first pick an Object)

hi, the addon is now in Blender nightly builds. It is located now in the Lighting category and it has a menu entry in Add > Light menu. It will also be in 2.8 release.


Many thanks for the info Meta-Androcto.

Hi @Schalla.

Could it be possible to modify the Documentation link
from: https://wiki.blender.org/wiki/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/
to: [PlugIn] 3-Way Lighting Script

in bl_info paragraph :
"wiki_url": "https://blenderartists.org/t/plugin-3-way-lighting-script/587240",

The button currently leads to the depreciated blender 2.6 documentation.
Thank you.

Do I need to restart Blender 2.81 for it to appear in the Object list and do I need to be in a certain mode (Object/Edit) or tab?
