Mesh Emitters


Mesh emitters let objects act as light sources. To use a mesh as a light source, the light source needs to be either a DiffuseAmount of diffusion, or the reflection of light photons at different angles from an uneven or granular surface. Used for dull, non-reflecting materials or mesh emitters., Standard Surface, or Universal material type. The emission types can be connected to the material's Emission input (figure 1)
