Adding the IES light type

What we'll do in this video is show you that there is actually a third option available when making use of the Spot light. Essentially, we can attach real-world lighting data to it and turn it into an IES light type. So once again, let's bring our Spot light into our scene, come down to our Layers option, and put a check in the Spot Light Layer.

But you of course need to select our Spot light and then click on the Light Editor icon, because we need to gain access to the IES tab. If we click on this, you can see we have one option in here that essentially allows us to load our IES profile and attach it to our Spot light.
