Isn't it possible to put objects with different Corona Light Materials into seperate Light Select Element?


I tried to add an object with CoronaLightMaterial on it via (+) button in LigthSelect dialog but it doesn't add the object to the list.. and also I tried to add it with Exclude/Include option, the object is added into the list but it is still connected to Rest(Unassigned)..

I've been wondering about this, too. Where you able to re-add the bend modifier once the object had been added to the LightSelect element?

finally it was not bend modifier, ... i have tured off, emit light in material settings. That caused this problem. Bend modifier was applied on plane, and it works now.

Corona Light Materials with "emit light" option disabled and Corona Materials with self-illumination enabled cannot be added to the LightSelect elements. They always end up in the "Rest" part of LightMix.
We already have a feature request for this logged in our tracker as it makes perfect sense (e.g. you may want to control the directly visible part of your light source, which is not emitting any light).
