Light Painter Add-on


This free add-on by SpencerM turns light design in Blender on its head: instead of manipulating the lights, you indicate how you want them to appear on your models by painting their influence. Very cool and innovative!

Paint where you want your light! A free Blender add-on enabling you to paint surfaces you want lit, and the add-on will place the lamp for you to highlight those surfaces.

You can find the add-on on my GitHub page.
