Object for floor uplight ( recessed in floor)?


I can't seem to find a floor upright. Oblya wall upright.


What do others us?

Some down lights will allow you to rotate them (some don't).

Or you can model something up that looks like an up-light, and then add a general spot light (rotated upwards) if you want the actual lighting effect in renders.
