Particle Lights

Overview

Since it’s difficult to create an intensity for Particle Lights that works well in all Day/Night lighting situations without blowing out too bright at Night or not being very noticeable in the Day, we have a Custom setting that helps scale the Light intensity based on the Intensity of the Sun/Dominant Light for that time of Day/Night.

Implementation

To get Particle Lights to have a better balanced intensity for Day and Night you need to add a “Scale Color Over Life” Node and set the “Scale Color by Day Cycle Intensity” flag like this. After doing this, make sure you test the result for varying times of day (as described in the “Time of Day Material Function” section).
