Turn on the lights

hi

I tried to put the lights in ArchiCAD 18, but as you can see in the picture below, they remain always off, and do not understand how to do to turn them

Have you tried to increase the light cone (anteprima e posizionamento).

Have you also put the intensity of light on in your render settings? Sun is standard 100%, but lights are standard 0%

Looks to me like the lights are on the the preview rendering. You just need to add more, add some ambient lighting, make sure your materials are set up to reflect the light in the way you want, etc.

Lighting in renderings, especially interior lighting, is very complex. I know some architectural colleges have entire classes devoted to lighting alone.

Do some research online and maybe use some of the "canned" templates within ArchiCAD to start.

There was/is a bug with lights if the setting is not set to 'Realistic" then it will not show in the rendering.

This is available only in ArchiCAD 18 so if you have an earlier version you will not have it.
I would be a good idea to place your computer specs and ArchiCAD version in your signature in your Profile.
