Too Bright?

Are the Christmas Lights too bright?

They have a weird falloff. I’m not sure what’s wrong, there.

I’m guessing you used halos, but you could probably just stick a light in the center of each bulb. Click the sphere button in the light settings, and set the distance so it’s a little larger than the light itself.

make sure you alt-d the lights so when you get one right, they all are the right brightness.

i did stick a light in each bulb, maybe i should turn off emit for the bulbs?
