Water not giving correct effect with light fixtures

Post by Archtube » Wed Jun 12, 2019 9:40 am

Hello!

I'm creating a landscape area which includes water. I have also used underwater luminaires, but for some reason the light is not showing through the water. I have checked all properties of the material for water and it seems fine. I can't find a way to fix it.

When i pan below the water I can see the source of light and I can also see the light distribution curve, but not the effect. Any ideas what could be the cause of this?

Thank you!

Hi T.Magenheimer,

I have already read those threads and have taken all appropriate measures to tackle this issue. Despite the efforts, nothing has changed.

I have tried to create a water surface (0.001 mm) and put luminaires under it.
I have tried to create water as an extrusion volume
I have tried to use different luminaires.

Nothing has worked and it is the first time I have encountered this problem.

Just as a side note, I am working in outdoor and building planning (if that matters, but it shouldn't since I always work with outdoors and never had an issue like this)

I appreciate if you could help otherwise instead of suggesting other threads.

Thank you in advance
