Link multiple lights to an Intensity expression
on Feb 10, 2014 at 10:13:32 am

I'm trying to link multiple lights, like 500, see example below, to one lights intensity.
So the one light controls every lights in my scene. The lights are all seperate lights. No instances or MoGraph effects.

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

Very easy:

1. Select the control light and right-click on the word "Intensity" in the attributes manager. From the pop up menu, select Xpressions>Set Driver;

2. Select all the other lights and repeat the above steps but select Xpressions>Set driven (absolute).

Now the control light's intensity will set the intensity of all your lights.
