Revit Tutorial - Show Lights Turned On in Renderings

This is a tutorial that I cannot believe I have not created yet! I have been asked this question so many time and I always search through the blog CERTAIN that I made a tutorial about it. Apparently not...  I guess I always just answered the question without a tutorial.  Well, not anymore!

This tutorial has to do with rendering in Revit and showing lights that ACTUALLY look like they are on.  The default Revit light fixtures produce interior light but do not visually show a light source when rendered.  This leaves renderings feeling less realistic and frustrates the hell out of many Revit users.

This tutorial will show you how to add a visual light source to your renderings.  You will be amazed at how much better the final product will feel and the amount of life it adds!
