    🙂  Hmm,,,, topic is linear lights /  ways to make in Envisioneer / multiple lights increase render time / bld file transfers intact lights / render time is cut in half with better computer / array copy – elevate can work as good as fixed light source / splitting views into plan and 3D help place lights /  having 2 screens in portrait vs landscape mode is interesting way to adjust views……

    Seems to me that ALL post are on topic . 🙂

    🙂 That’s why i created the second topic called (computer systems carried over from linear lights) cause i didn’t know how far off topic i should go.

    I have ‘off topic syndrome ‘  , very rare, nothing can be done to cure it.

    So, no problem on my end.

    Hey Jack,

    Good to know!

    Here is a rope lighting that I created the blue looks good but the purple/pink combo wants to shine to far and not stay inside the member.

    Any thoughts on what might be wrong?

    That Strip Light only works if it has a cove in front of it to contain the light.

    Cadsoft produced a LED light. It is on the BIM Catalog page.  Give it a try. I haven’t downloaded it yet.

    https://www.cadsoft.com/bim-catalogs/

    EDIT …. I seems that right now the Catalog is mixed up on that link. The LED light is Closet Accessories and Cl one is the actual LED light.

    OP, here. So, back on-topic (ahem!)

    Knowing that Cadsoft’s new LED Strip Light download is really more of a rope light, I added it to the catalog regardless and placed one in my dark, dismal living room to see what would happen. Placed it alongside one of the squished fluorescent lights I’d been using.

    So, why, when I click “Insert into Content,” do I get the above line in the finished post instead of an inline image? Oh well, see attachment below.

    Yes, there’s the distracting dim/bright/dim/bright/dim/bright/dim effect I’d expected. Placing 1 little light is all I had time for tonight. The X/Y/Z axes and elevation parametrics, alas, don’t match those of the fluorescent fixtures for some reason (why???), so I’ll have to calculate elevations for the sloped ceiling all over again.

    But more than enough whining.

    I did a quickie render, and the LED Strip Light actually casts light!! So maybe I’ll make one more pass at this nighttime render and see if I can get something usable.

    But back to the original wishlist item posed in this thread (and its predecessor)…we really need a true, linear light source in Env to model LEDs, and old-school neon and fluorescents.

    And that will enable crazy LED fixtures in the Catalog like this that can use the newfangled linear light source–
