Dear friends, how easy do You find positional light location to take it to the scene (in case You want it to be visible).
Sometimes I waste half an hour to get the positional light in the camera FOV and sometimes I fail after an hour of fiddling with 'Xpos', 'Ypos' and 'Zpos'. All I discovered is I can move say the 'Xpos' scroll to the left and if I still feel it's not enough I switch to another light and then back to that positional I am playing with and move the 'Xpos' scroll to the left once again since it is in the middle of the bar again after the light switching. This trick though doesn't work at all sometimes.
Is there sommething else I miss?
P. S. Of course I know that 'Vis.' should be 1-3  cheesy
Thank You in advance,
Sfumato.

There's a button with the inscription "mid" in the postional light tab. If you click this button and then click in the image, the positional light will be located there. That's all there is to it.  wink

Thank You, Madman! As it didn't work for me in some close-up scenes (example parameters below), I thought I was doing something wrong. So as far as I understand it works when the object is not very close to the camera. Am I right?

The intensity of the light is too high in your case. If you reduce "amount" to 2e-2 and then slide the Z-slider a little to the left, your positional light will appear

Hi

I had the same problem and it is now solved by decreasing the "amount" of light!
