How to create invisible lights in Reality

For years you heard me saying that you can’t do that, isn't that true? As I often said: “Reality and LuxRender are about physics, and in the real world you can’t hide a light. If you need to hide a light move it out of the frame.”


And that is a very good piece of advice. So, today I’m going to tell you how to cheat Want to know how to do it?

[edit] Correction, this appears to only work with the new accelerated mode of Reality 4.1, which explains why it was never an option before. Apologies about it but you will have this feature soon enough. Thanks to Callad for pointing it out to me
