when you open the lights tool it is already prepared to insert a light.
you click 3 times - reference point, placement position point, and target.
if you right-click before you begin placing a light, you will be able to choose from 4 light types.

Save yourself a lot of frustration and wasted time and watch the 6 video tutorials linked in my signature below. :hat:

If you want a library of over 160 light fixture components for Twilight Render and more, and you buy Pro version, you can download them from the resources section here on the forum (only seen by pro users) or Pro users can download them Under Extensions -> Twilight Render V2, you will find a new option, Download Twilight Render Resources.

When you click on this new feature, TWR will download all the latest official Twilight Render models directly into SketchUp. Once the download is complete, you will be able to find all the models in the Component Browser, under the Twilight Render folder!

The specific quintessential video tutorial on lighting with Twilight Render is here:
