Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Use lights, part of iOS Game Development: Swift 2.0 and SpriteKit.
- SpriteKit has lighting effects that you can add…quickly and easily to your apps.…So here I have an orange peg and a blue peg.…So with the orange peg selected I'm going…to go to the attributes inspector and go to the…lighting mask, shadow cast, and shadow mask section.…I'm going to change all of those from zero to one…and I'm going to do the same thing for the blue peg.…This essentially turns on lighting effects for these…particular nodes.…In other words, they're going to cast shadows…once we put a light in the scene.…
So I'm going to copy these,…I'll drag a few of them out,…I'll select the blue one and do the same thing…putting some pegs on the screen.…And that looks good.…Now for the light.…So I'm going to click and drag, and just bring…the light up there.…At it's default, we get those grey shadows.…Now it'll look even more interesting if…we darken the background.…So I'm going to click away, and I'm going to change…the color of the background to a dark grey color.…
