    Hi
    I try to add light sources into my shady inn, but i get the problem that the light is bleeding through the walls.
    How can i stop that?
    The light should only go through the windows.
    See map around building.

    Make sure your walls are on a sheet which actually blocks light. Looking at your drawing, it looks like the walls belonging to the partial building at the bottom blocks the light perfectly, so I would start by ensuring that all the other walls are on the same sheet as these. Also, make sure to use a small value for blur in the global sun dialog, as blurring the shadows also causes light leaks (because the edge of the shadow up against the blocking object is also blurred)

    Thank you Monsen!
    You nailed it.
    It was the Blur in Global Sun dialog.
    I had it on 15 and changed it to 2.
    Big difference.
    Now i only need to tweak the lights ;)

    The black in the lower building was just a black square to hide it :)
