Hi there,

I need to create a small lighting strip to backlight a curved wall in a bathroom - as you can see in the render attached, i tried to do it creating a semi-circle of spotlights, but they are aren't exactly subtle!! The light effect on the wall is right, but not the big yellow blobs - any ideas of what I could do?

Thanks

Tivoli lights are some of the best known here. http://www.tivolilighting.com/Home.aspx

To get the right result you may have to make your own. and place them behind frosted glass or something like that with many small lights arrayed around the curvature.

Create a new family "Wall based", then you need to create a "material" with the same characteristics of a "light", then you can play with those parameters like you want, this is a workaroud because you can't create a "Linear (curved) light" family (yet).

Hope this help
