Locking a Light's POI?
on Feb 2, 2010 at 3:53:55 pm

This is such a stupid question, how do I lock the POI of a light so I move the light around it? Presently, when I grab the light and move it around, the POI goes with it, can someone help me out in this truly blond moment? my wife is blond it must have rubbed off some :p

from "Move a camera, light, or point of interest":

"To move the camera or light along a single axis without moving the point of interest, Ctrl-drag (Windows) or Command-drag (Mac OS) the axis.
To move the camera or light freely without moving the point of interest, drag the camera icon or light icon."

This is the first result that comes up with this search.
