The Light Layer plug-in applies lighting to a certain group of containers. Every light has a light layer property, the light with its corresponding bit-wise layer number is only applied to the light layer group.

Compatibility Info: This plug-in works in the Viz Engine Render Pipeline only!

Light Layer Properties

  • Mask (1-8): Selects a bit-wise mask on what lights are being applied to this container. If you have two spotlights within your scene, a layer can be set for each single light. You can choose if your geometry is lit by Light 1, Light 2 or both.

Note: Light layers are counted from 0 (Light UI), whereas in the Light Layer plug-in they start from 1.
