Hallway lighting

Postby Datawraith » Thu Nov 11, 2010 10:34 pm

So I'm new to blender and stuff. . .

anyway I made a school hallway but I can't get the lighting to light the hallway in the right way. How can I make the lighting to look more normal?

This is what I keep getting.

It looks like you have placed the lights along the walls, or facing the walls. Is this the effect you want? Normally a hallway would have its lights in the ceiling.

Tip: you can place a light inside a translucent object, and have it shine through, making it look like the object is the source of the light.

Try putting them behind translucent ceiling panels, then. Or you can even have ceiling panels with an emission factor, which means they act as lights.
