Softbox Light Controls

I just am having a little problem, I am using softbox light from the presets and I want only the light emitting from it while its rendered and not showing the object.
I tried putting the compositing tag on the softbox and unchecked the seen by camera box, but I must've made some mistake so the whole softbox is still seen while its rendered.

Hi Kedar,

If you are referring to the softbox lights from the Visualize > Presets in the content browser, they are controlled by XPresso setups.



In order to keep the illumination, but disable rendering the light source itself, select the Softbox in the Objects menu and deselect "Render Plane Only" in the SoftBox_Controls settings. In the same settings, "Render in Scene" controls whether the stand and other physical elements of the softbox will render, so uncheck that as well.
