Realistic lighting is crucial to creating not only realistic scenes but also to leaving a lasting impression and conveying a certain feeling. All lights are not equal, and it is not surprising that many users are in the dark about which light best suits their needs. This guide will provide an overview of the lighting options available via the Enscape objects window in SketchUp

TYPES OF LIGHTS IN SKETCHUP
There are five different lights you can add

Spot lights

Sphere lights

Rectangular lights

Disk lights

Linear lights

Once you add a light, you will be able to fine-tune various settings for the individual lights in the Enscape  window. In addition to lights, this window also allows you to add sound sources and proxies to your model. All lights can be placed with the easy 2-Click System

SPOT LIGHT
A spot light functions similarly to a spot light in real life and provides a very direct source of light. It is a cone of light which emits light from a single point in one direction. By changing how wide the cone angle is, you can control how much of your scene is illuminated. The width of the cone can also determine whether the light is hard or soft Practical uses for spot lights include store displays, desk lamps, street lights or stage lighting. They can also be used in a scene to create dramatic lighting effects, as they are useful for creating an obvious falloff from light to dark
