took some time, but I found the light that works for me on the outside of the building, with Path trace. several worked with 2020, 

 

It's the Illuminance (Lux),      I was a little frustrated and Tech really didn't give a clear answer.

Thought I would share.

Maybe was just me, but the LUX light puts the icing on 3D, the way I use it.    

Now 3D is ready to rock on my machine

Fred, what light is this?  

your drawing looks like it is electrical symbol so i looked at the electrical library but couldn't find any, did you get one somewhere else? i do see in 3d model that under "sun options" it has the Illuminance (lux) option

 

I would like to make more realistic 3-D but honestly i need to play with it more to figure it out.

 

Thank you for any input. and thanks for sharing

It's the tool to right of light bulb, it says Direct light when you hover over it,  It throws a lot of light like the sun does.  I use it like the sun a lot by putting the Position Z up more and it does shadows, like the sun.

 

Point light and spot light don't seem to do like they did with 2020, but the "Direct light (LUX) is good for me.

 

I'm doing Direct X12, with Path Tracing on , auto light source unchecked (in lighting tab)

 

It's easy to get wraPPED UP IN making 3D really nice, and eat up time from doing the actual plan.

 

Always amazes me that do the floor plan and then a 3D can appear. Editing from the 3D is great.
