- For a space between 8-9 feet tall (about 2-2.5 meters) assuming that a spotlight of power of "1" is a 100 watt light bulb is a good place to start.
- Spacing your light fixtures out to match how you would do so in real life is essential.
- Loading an IES data file for a Can Downlight into your spotlight inside of a can downlight in your model is the fastest way to get great-looking lighting.
- Remember that the default color of the light source (even IES files) is always white, so setting the correct color for your light source is essential for realistic results.
