Objective: Add lighting to our Scene to bring it to life.

In my scene, I will be adding a point light and a spotlight. This will help guide the player through the scene and highlight the areas they should focus on.

Point Light: A Point Light is set at a particular spot in our scene and sends light out in all directions equally. The Light intensity will diminish with the distance from the light

Adding a Point Light

After adding the point light to the scene I can now adjust the radius and the intensity of the light

Adjusting the Light

Now that I have the Point Light adjusted I can simply create duplicates and place them around my Scene.

Placing Lights around the Scene

Spotlight: Similar to the Point Light, with the main difference being the light is constrained to an angle which gives it a cone shape and the light travels in one direction.

Adding a SpotLight

Once the spotlight is pointed in the right direction, I can adjust the range and the radius of the light

Adjusting the SpotLight

Now lets take a look at what adding some lights to the scene can do for the overall feel of the Game

Light Demo

Happy Coding!!
