It it possible to view light effects in build mode? I have tried F8

I have placed a light in a nightscene - as shown in the attached file. Is it possible to get the lights to cast shadows?

Thanks and sorry for noob questions :-/

Hi jorgensen, judging by the screenshot it looks like this is a 360 degree point light?

Excerpt from the Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts thread:
http://lumion3d.com/forum/f-a-q/lumion-3-tips-tricks-and-shortcuts-7526/

"- If you move the Cone angle slider past the small arrow, it turns into a 360 degree point light. This light type does not cast shadows."

Ah thanks morten - I did actually search the FAQ, but overlooked it.

Maybe that's because I only just added it :)

Thanks for the reminder!
