Adding a Landscape Light
Landscape lights can be used to improve your landscape
design’s appearance at night. When viewing a Realtime Walkthrough at sunset,
sunrise, or in the evening, every landscape light in your design will
automatically light up.
To add a landscape light:
Click the Add Light button found near the top of the screen under
the Landscape tab.
Click the picture of the default landscape light that appears to the right of
the screen, and then select the light you would like to use.
Click on your design where you want to place the landscape light.
Realtime Landscaping Architect includes many standard
landscaping lights as well as specialty lights, such as flaming torches,
Japanese lanterns, spotlights, and more. In the picture below, torches were
added using the Landscape Light object.
Lights that have been added to your landscape design will illuminate
during Realtime Walkthroughs if the time of day has been set to evening, sunset,
or sunrise. For more information, see Environment Settings.
Landscape lights can be difficult to place if grid snap is enabled. You
can toggle the grid snapping off by pressing Ctrl + G on
your keyboard. For more information, see Snap
Lights can also be added to houses, pools, and streets. For details, see
Adding a House Light, Adding a Pool Light, and Adding a Street Light.
Landscape lights can be rotated and scaled as necessary. For more
information, see Scaling Objects and Rotating Objects. Note that changing the size of
a light does not change its brightness.
