Strange light problem in Invigorator Pro (AE)
on Jun 23, 2012 at 1:30:39 pm

I have a model loaded into Invigorator and I have "use comp camera" and "use comp lights" ticked as I want to use AE's cameras and lights. So that my model can cast a shadow I've set up a shadow catcher plane and this is working perfectly. If I throw a spotlight onto my model it casts a shadow as expected. However, no matter what intensity I turn my lights up to, it makes absolutely no difference to the brightness off the model. If I point a spotlight directly at the model and turn the brightness down to 50%, it looks exactly the same even when I turn the light intensity right up to 1000%. The only thing that the light intensity seems to change is the darkness and lightness of the shadows (mediam at %50 brightness, jet black at %1000). The model itself remains exactly the same intensity. Just to make sure my lights were working correctly, I placed an AE solid directly in between the model and the light and the solid reacts as expected to the light.
