AR Lighting Options

(Aaronopenshaw) #1

Hi Sketchfab,

Some of my interior models have intimate and atmospheric lighting accomplishes with your spot lighting which is great for interacting with the model on screen or in VR.

The problem I’ve found is that with low level lighting, these models do not translate well into AR with the model ending up too dark because the spot lighting is not supported in AR mode and I’ve turned the default environmental lighting right down to dark.

It would be great if you had an option in AR model to brighten the level of lighting. At this stage my only solution is to create duplicate models with different lighting suitable for AR versus VR.




Hi Aaron,

Thanks for the feedback! Lighting is tricky in AR because we cannot detect the lighting conditions of the space that you’re in, so it’s difficult to make lighting/shadows look convincing. It’s something we’ll continue working on though! ( @tuan_kuranes )
