USAI Lighting has a wide range of LED cylinder light products that are perfect for commercial exterior areas. Whether it’s for building entrances, walkways, porches or perimeters, these cylinder wall mounted lights provide the right amount of highlighting and illumination while maintaining a sleek look. Suitable for outdoor use, this type of LED fixture offers excellent glare control making it the perfect choice for any space.
The cylinder light also has a few additional controls to make it unique and versatile. These include Position and Rotation, a Radius/Length value, a Shadow type and Samples. The cylinder light uses a physically based model for intensity fall off so the brightness of the item decreases with the inverse square of the distance away from it. This is in contrast to the standard behavior which uses a more geometrically accurate model for this purpose, where a light becomes half as bright at twice the distance away.
Additionally, this cylinder light has an Item Transform tool that gives you additional handles to manipulate the items shape and size directly in 3D view. This makes it easy to create a wide variety of shapes for this type of fixture. It also allows you to set a time offset, in frames, for how the light follows the target item. This can be delayed, behind it with a negative value, or run ahead of it with a positive value. This enables you to create a wide range of different follower styles and effects, which is particularly useful for things like moving vehicles. Also, this feature supports lighting rigs with multiple follows so you can have several objects being followed by the same light.
