How to Paint with LIGHT in Blender!

Hi everyone,

In this video, I show you you can use texture-painted surfaces as light sources in a Blender scene. With a creative use of this technique, you can create custom light sources and reflection patterns that would otherwise be difficult to achieve with regular light nodes or HDRIs.

Thanks for watching and have a great day!
