    Hi guys
    I often use the shaded view as "renders" to costumers, but to punch some life into the drawings I often add extra lighting for ambience.

    I give my lamps and pipes a 100% transparency, but I can't seem to find the way to hide the lens light completely - flare and beam can be hidden in the fixture option, and the lens for all lamps can be hidden in the Shaded view options, but I need it for individual lamps.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe not what you are asking, but I tend to get good results when using daylight simulation if my plot isn't quite finished to include all lighting. Otherwise I sometimes add 'houselights' and 'worker s' the form of Scoops or cyclights. As you can see WYSIWYG=what you see is what you get=no cheating ;-)
