Category: (core) Lighting (See list of specification categories)
Introduction: Describes custom light settings, including various light sub-types supported by modo 401.


The modo render engine provides a general purpose collection of light settings and light sub-types, including both the basic directional, point, and spot lights specified by the common COLLADA technique, as well as more specialized light sub-types such as area lights and physically correct sunlights.
Name Type Description Required?
sid xs:ncname A unique symbol within the technique; one for each param. Yes

modo 401 supports the following light sub-types, as indicated by the initial param element identified by the "lightType" sid, as shown in the example later in this article:
  • area_light
  • cylinder_light
  • dome_light
  • photometric_light
  • point_light
  • spot_light
  • sun_light
