I am trying to bake my GI with stationary lights while having the ability turn all the lights off, leaving you with a dark room and a flash light. I am working on a horror experience.
Movable lights do not give me the realism i am after, i need those light bounces.
Right now I am thinking of animating my eye adaptation and stationary lights to give the illusion of lights turning off, but that is not a great solution since I have the feeling my flashlight will look weird and i would have to have my lights dimmed for my entire level.
Am I able to disable the baked lighting during runtime? That way when i turn my stationary lights off, the room goes dark. If i can’t do that, would something like level streaming give the impression of lights turning off. I could render 2 versions of my room similar to the realistic rendering demo.
