Working with light

Please explain:
1. Where and how this function (Show light source) works? I do not see the difference when  switch ON/OFF...
2. What is the difference of interaction with the object of these two types of - Light Fill and Omni Light?
3. What is the difference of the parameters Overbright and Range?
P.S. Sorry for the machine translation ;)

Hi AJP,

The light source is possibly inside the ball. Try moving the light source up a little.

Thank you, this is understandable. Let's delete the picture example - will remain the same issues ... for all occasions.

1. Where and how this function (Show light source) works? I do not see the difference when  switch ON/OFF...

A small light bulb model will appear when you turn it on (but only if the Cone Angle value is lower than the small arrow along the slider - see my reply to your next question).

2. What is the difference of interaction with the object of these two types of - Light Fill and Omni Light?

It's the same thing. There are actually only 2 artificial light types in Lumion:
IES lights and 360 degree point lights. If the Cone angle value is higher than the small arrow on the Cone Angle slider, the IES light will be converted to a 360 degree point light. However, point lights don't cast shadows and light from this light source will pass through all surfaces.

3. What is the difference of the parameters Overbright and Range?

Overbright -> Intensity
Range -> How far the light will reach
