Learn how to work with the Lighting tools in Houdini's Solaris context. Explore the various light handles for positioning lights from the camera's viewpoint then learn how to control all the lights using the light mixer. Next see how Solaris accommodates multi-shot scenarios with camera switching and insertion points. Finally explore the Render Gallery which is a powerful tool for generating multiple iterations as you work through your lighting setup.

    Hi, thanks for this usefull series!
    While using the Look-At Mode i encounter some strange behavior - as long as this mode is active, everything is fine.
    As soon as I leave the mode the light changes its rotation and begins to behave really unpredicable.

    Did I miss something?

    Thanks for your help.
