How to use "light follows viewer"?

Postby Olle » Tue Jun 18, 2019 3:05 am

I might be missing something obvious, but how do you turn off "light follows viewer" in the multi sided view? Or is it on by default?

It doesn't seem to work like that in the multi sided view though...?

Make sure you are in the 3D view.

Yeah, I figure it won't do me any good in the 2D view :D Seriously, I work with two sided models, and it seems like "light follows viewer" can't be turned off when I'm in the "multi sided" mode. There wouldn't be much light on the back if I was able to turn it off, so I suspect it's on by default in this mode.

It is on by default and can't be turned off in 2-sided view as, you suspected, the other side would be too dark. There was talk about changes to that in future versions though.

Thanks, that's what I thought. It's no big deal, it's just that I don't like that sinking feeling I get when I flip the model and forget to turn 2 sided view on again... "Oh crap, where did the back of my model go?" :D
