Ambient Light from remote

Post by jnaor » 10 Jun 2018, 15:20

Hi,

1. Is it possible to change the ambient light from remote API / via a script?
2. For some reason I do not see any effect of the ambient light on a textured plane (which is affected by a spotlight in the same scene.) What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
Jonathan

Hello,

yes, you can. But you'll have to do this indirectly by calling a script function via simxCallScriptFunction. Inside of the script function, use sim.setArrayParameter(sim.arrayparam_ambient_light,color).

Your textured shape might not be influenced by light if the texture Apply mode is not modulate.

Cheers
