Hello:)

I was wondering if there is an easy way to have the effect of spotlight with Corona. There is also a reference and a sketch of the scene, that show what I am trying to do.
Please note that i'm new to Cinema/Corona so im not working with the Node Material Editor yet.

Thank you very much for all answers:)

Hi !

There are at least two ways :

1. Using a C4D Native spot light object. Not the most realistic result but the beam will be customisable.



2. Using an IES file in a Corona Light :



You can find .ies files on internet but before that, check the ones in C4D's Asset Browser.
