Create your own IES lights...

Post by Frederik » Fri Sep 04, 2009 3:40 pm

Hi All,

Check out the GE Lightning Tools and Software web-site, where you can find many useful resources regarding IES lights... ;)

In particular I recommend that you scroll down to the bottom of the site, where you can download and install the GE Light*Beams 3.0, which is a free application you can use to preview IES lights...
You can also create your own IES libraries and export them to be used in Twilight... :D

  • choose any .ies light you want to preview
    tweak the angle
    set the wall height
    set distance from walls
    set number of lights you want to use
    set distance between the fixtures.
Shows you the type of fixture your chosen bulb is meant for spot, flouresent tube, etc..

Then see how your light will look real-time on the floor, on the wall, on both.
Hope many of you will find this small program handy... ;)
