I'm Using Vue Studio 2016 and would like to have two suns in the image. I've tried duplicating the default sun and also adding a directional light, neither have worked. It seems like I can only have one on at a time.
If you mean 2 identical suns, I don't know how to achieve the effect. I tried to duplicate the default sun in Vue infinite 2016, it is not visible in the atmosphere, as if Vue was programmed to have only one in the scene.
The second becomes visible if you activate the lens flare effect in light editor, but it shows as a strong light, you don't see the shape of it (so they are not identical).
In the atmospheres Vue provides by default (at least in Infinite) there is one in "others", with 2 suns, but the settings are exactly what I describe : the default sun and a second with lens flare on, so different aspect.
Maybe a sphere as light source and a duplicate sun behind would do the trick?
Thank you Walther and Lili for the feedback.
I mean I can't see the second directional light source as an object in the sky, like the sun is. The desired affect is to have two visible suns showing the same atmospheric effects but ideally, different physical size and color.
Lili: You say you can see the lens flare but don't see the shape of it - you are saying that you see the lens flare effect for the second light source but you can not see the actual source (the disk of the sun) in the sky? I think I did see that in my trials and errors.
I made a quick test. Here:
To the left the normal scene sun, the other two spheres that are converted to areal lights. Then set lens flare and a light gel material that in the middle case got a glow. It can be tweaked lot more, here the intention was just to show that it is possible.
Walther has The Solution, as usual, he's the expert
Here are the tests I wrote above, plus other trials to illustrate what I meant
1 : duplicate sun : useless
2 : duplicate sun + lens flare on. Result : a strong light but no sun shape
3 : a sphere and a special effect material . Result : a mix of both, not very satisfying
4 : Walther's solution
