Dynamic lights SDK location

Postby NZ255 » Wed May 31, 2017 7:39 pm

Hi team, congrats on v4! Massive step forward for FS

I'm very interested in the dynamic lights and want to have a read up on what's involved making them, particularly for scenery in my case. Where can I find the page in the sdk? Is it the custom lights in PDK section?

Hey Both,

Dynamic lights inside Prepar3D are created through the special effect files and systems. We added a new tab to the VisualFX tool called light to make this process easier. The documentation for this is inside the Special Effect page inside the Learning Center.
