Lights are great for atmosphere and other effects in your games. This tutorial shows how to create and customize lights in your games.
- [Instructor] Lighting can add atmosphere…and great effects to your games.…Let's say we have certain items in our game…that we don't want to see until we get close to them.…Lighting can work great for that.…So I'm going to start by creating a light…by just dragging one from the object library…and I'm going to have it be a child of the player.…So I'm going to drag it right underneath the player node…and make sure that I release my mouse button…when that blue line is indented a little bit.…Now we can control the settings for the light node…by selecting it…and we'll see the settings in the attributes inspector here.…
We can give it a name if we want to reference it with code…and we can adjust the color of the lighting…and other settings.…So when it comes to color, the color of the lighting…is going to be the color of the object that is lit.…So if you have a white light,…the object's going to look normal when it's lit up.…For now I'm not going to change that.…We'll look at that later.…What I want to draw your attention to…
