Demos > Area Lighting

Most real-time lighting systems treat lights as points in space. These lights have no area. But real lights do. This demo shows a technique used to create more realistic lighting by giving lights realistic area. The demo illuminates a simple scene (with a crazy sock monster thing). You can change the color of the light with the color widget.

This demo focused on the area lighting itself, so there aren't any other lighting effects or shadows happening.
