About Spotlights

    About Spotlights

    A spotlight distribution casts a focused beam of light like a flashlight, a follow
    spot in a theater, or a headlight. A spotlight emits a directional cone of light.
    You can control the direction of the light and the size of the cone.

    In the standard lighting workflow, a spotlight can be manually set to attenuate its
    intensity with distance. However, a spotlight’s intensity will also always attenuate
    based on the angle relative to the spot’s target vector. This attenuation is controlled
    by the hotspot and falloff angles of the spotlight. Spotlights are useful for highlighting
    specific features and areas in your model.

    NOTE:Starting with AutoCAD 2016-based products, all standard lights are calculated as photometric
    lights. It is recommended to update all standard lights in a scene to photometric

    Spotlights in Photometric Workflow

    A spotlight can have photometric distribution properties. The attenuation for a photometric
    spotlight is always set to inverse square.

    When the LIGHTINGUNITS system variable is set to 1 (American units) or 2 (International
    SI units) for photometric lighting, additional properties are available for a spotlight.
    The following photometric properties can be set via the Properties palette:

    • Lamp Intensity. Specifies the inherent brightness of the light. Specifies the intensity, flux, or
      illuminance of the lamp.
    • Resulting Intensity. Gives the final brightness of the light. (Product of lamp intensity and intensity
      factor. Read-only.)
    • Lamp Color. Specifies the inherent color of the light in Kelvin temperature or standard.
    • Resulting Color. Gives the final color of the light. This is determined by a combination of the filter
      and lamp color. (Product of filter and lamp color. Read-only.)
    NOTE:When the drawing lighting units are photometric, the attenuation type property becomes disabled. Photometric lights have fixed, inverse-square attenuation.
    The hotspot falloff attenuation in the rendered image varies from standard lighting,
    as it uses a different mathematical basis.

    The following image is an example of a photometric spotlight with the photometric
    properties outlined on the Properties palette:
