barndoors (fuzzy area light edges)

Would it be possible to get 'built in' barn doors? Directly in the light parameters(like in Maya). It would give you much more control over your light.

Hi, I had to google to find out what it is. :)
Do you have any practical use for this?

In Corona you could play with the directionality parameter, change light shape, and/or use a custom texture for the light. Using a procedural texture should give you a lot of flexibility.

Another idea is to model the "shutters" manually. :)

Correct me if i'm wrong, but i think directionality in CoronaLights does exactly the same thing that barn doors on softboxes does. Only that Corona ones are infinitely long.

Well, I am not sure how it works in Maya, but if it does this:

Then in Corona you can't do it with a disc light using directionality only.

Oh, i overlooked "like in Maya" part :] I was refering to real world barn doors modifiers.
