Hi,

I'm having trouble with a 3D scene i've created, which involves a virtual camera moving closer toward the camera and closing in for close ups and coming back out for long shots. I have lit the scene with spot lighting and some an ambient light but am having trouble with the intensity getting brighter as the camera gets nearer to my subject. I'd like the lighting in the room to stay the same intensity at all times so that different shots match up in lighting.

I have played around with many different settings including setting the falloff to none, changing material specular and diffuse settings but none have given me the right output. Any ideas how to get a constant intensity on the lighting?

Thanks

Glenn

This doesn't sound right. Screen shots of your Comp (activeCamera and TOP views) and your Timeline (showing KFs) may be useful in finding out what the issues are.

Strangely enough as soon as I read your post and turned the lights back on they magically worked and stopped turning brighter?! Thank you very much for your telekinetic fix.
