Creating Up Lights

I'm a landscape architect trying to figure out how to uplight trees / columns / etc... most of the things we like to use dramatic lighting for cannot (so far as I can tell) be replicated with the static down lights. I've figured out methods of getting spot lights to go to 45 degrees and to go horizontal, but I can't seem to find a method to flip them completely. Thoughts // comments // suggestions?

Hi RenderBox, which version of Lumion are you using?

Currently running lumion 4, trying to make the case to the higher ups to purchase 6 whenever we can find out something about it. But for now, on version 4.

No worries :)

The next step is to click here and follow step 2, 3 and 4 to register your license. This will give you access to the full forum for Commercial Users.

There are 3 ways to change the rotation of a spotlight in Lumion 4.5.1:

1) Choose the Rotate heading tool, then select the model, and move the mouse cursor up to the top right corner to either drag one of the 3 sliders or double-click on a slider to type in an angle.

2) Alternatively, you can also hold down the R, P or B keys, then click-and-hold-down the left mouse button on the small circular object icon of the spotlight and and drag the mouse cursor to change the Heading (R), Pitch (P) and Bank (B) of the spotlight.

3) A 3rd alternative is to click on the Edit Properties button (The pencil icon). Then click on the small circular object icon of the spotlight. You should now see a small button with a lightbulb and a crosshair at the bottom of the spotlight properties window. Click on it and then click on an object to get the spotlight to point at the position you clicked on.
