An effect that brightens a scene. Spot lights creates a cone of light of varying intensity and color that can be positioned and oriented in any direction. In addition, a spot light may have a bitmap projector image or gel placed on it to produce a different shadowed effect. Spot lights are positioned within a scene where they can be modified and manipulated like other model objects.
A luminaire using halogen/incandescent or a high intensity discharge (HID) lamp that produces a narrow beam angle designed to illuminate a specifically defined area. It can also be called a reflector lamp.
A light that shines evenly within a narrow range of directions (defined by a cone) from the light's location. Spot lights create a beam of light that gradually becomes wider (for example, a flashlight or car headlight).
