is there any way to to make a spotlight have a different shape? just curious, need a rectangle…square is inadequate :spin:
Could you use a ‘letterbox’ texture to make your square light rectangular?
whats a letterbox texture?
oooh thats quite clever, thanks
Any texture will work if you try. The letterbox I did at 1.000 0.350 1.000 for the xyz sizing.
Wait, so do you mind if I ask why you needed a rectangular light?
im making a projector in my scene, cause i only recently realized that i could add txtres to lights, so decided to mess around with it
Neat! Thats actually a pretty neat idea.
You can also use a cookie cutter technique. Meaning you create a plane with a hole in the shape you need and place that in front of the light. This of course only works if the cookie cutter is outside of the cameras view.
