RC markers + FP Lights
« on: February 12, 2021, 11:04:41 AM »
Hi
Please check light orientation with different markers.
note:
Equal side triangle `Marker1` was imported from CAD software as a .dxf file.
Marker2 is the copy of the Marker1 with one vertex moved.
Xform is applied to both segments.

Hi Dragan. This is unrelated to Lights. This applies to general workflow in pre FP7.
You don't want to use equal size triangle marker when indicating some direction with it.
If the Align option is enabled, items are aligned with the face, using as X axis a vector from the center to the farthest vertex in the triangle.

Ok, got it, but why some of the FP light is facing a different position?

FP can't determine inteded direction from equalsided triangle.

Ok. Good to know and maybe to point this in some future documentation as an important note.
Thank You Rokas.

P.S.
I think FP is good enough, it is time to go with new RC Beta!!!  ;)
