How to animate lights and take off intensity of a light
show user profile  alexandriareene
I have a scene I'm animating (the pendulum scene for Animation 1) and my instructor put a light to light the scene however it just looks awful it makes the scene way way to bright. its a target light and i tried to less intensify it and it still looks awful. I'm not sure how to fix it. I also wanted to make lights animate like when alarm lights go off. I'm not sure what type of lighting i should use?

Can you help me?

Is the scene using scanline rendering or is it using Mental Ray? What is the name and type of the light? If it's photometric, you'll have to adjust the exposure settings in the exposure option. If it's a regular 3ds max light, you can change the multiplier, or check your 3ds max gamma settings. The file might have tried to adjust the gamma (brightness) of the scene relative to your current 3ds max settings.

What was the assignment regarding this scene? What are you supposed to do or learn in it? And please answer the questions I gave in my earlier reply: they might hold the key to figuring this out.
