Point light to fill light?
on Feb 21, 2012 at 12:58:56 pm

Motion 4, how is this done? I have to point lights which work really nicely and are keyframed to move a little bit. However When they are finished I want the whole picture to be uniformly lit, and am not sure how to do this- adding another light to come in at that point only makes the whole thing VERY bright and decreasing intensity just makes it non uniform and shadowy again. Please help!

Add an ambient light. Keyframe it's intensity to increase and the point light intensities to decrease.
