The Podium Browser Light Fixtures have now been completely updated.

Every light is now adequately calibrated with the manufacturer specifications; light output and bulb type.

Light output: Calibration where made from the 1.0 interior, we will make sure all other presets matches that, if it is not already done.
Just so you now:
100w incandescent =  0.7 OMNI Power
60w incandescent = 0.4 OMNI Power

Bulb Type: Every Fitting has a dynamic component option on witch you can chose the bulb type available for the specific fitting, and also turn it off.

Interior Bulb: 
-Incandescent (a more warmer light)
-Halogen (whiter)
-LED (bluish)
Fluorescent:
-Warm
-Standard
-Cool White
Exterior:
- Hight Pressure Sodium (yellow street light)
- Metal Halide (whiter)
- Cosmopolite (Warmer)

Again, it depends on what the real fitting has to offer.

The fixtures that will most likely be featured and not copied a 100 times have also their advanced material properties configured. Thats would be : Table, Floor and some ceilings. For the others, you can configure them to you likings.

If you want to modify them:
There are 2 types: OMNI and LEM

For onmi, the difference is that the light itself is in another component that has possibly the different colors. You will need to enter this component and modify the OMNI. 
- Please note that if you change an Onmi, and then change the bulb type, changes will not be made to the other Light bulb.

For LEMs, sometimes you will have a big rectangle floating in mid air; it will disappear on render. Since its an LEM, light is managed by textures so you can modify it. They are generally fluorescent lights.

If you have any question please ask.
If you notice something wrong please report here.

P.S Big black holes are not a fixture problem, its an engine bug that will happen randomly. Please do not report them as fixtures misconfiguration.

Thanks,
Nick

sorry, im not sure i understand. I'm trying to use a fluorescent light, and I can see the different dynamic option for invisible LEM, but there are no more OMNIs built into the fixture itself. Do i have to manually insert new omni's?

Thanks

or maybe I am mistaken and that there were never omnis inside fluorescent lights

All fixtures are all ready to render. If you do not wish to make changes on the fixture and let it like it would on real life, the only thing you have to worry about is the color options you have in the dynamics component options. You chose from the available option and render thats it.

Now if you want to make changes on the fittings, they are lighten either by an omni or and LEM witch you can modify. Sometime and OMNI are use has fluorescent, but at 90% of the cases LEM are use for only for fluorescent.

I noticed in browser under free 3D trees that it says V2 renders them slow. This rendering with all available trees took 15 minutes using 1.0 exterior QMC. With exterior default it took 1,5 hours. Tree trunks are modeled nicely, but leaves and branches need better masking. For better results you have to have branch textures that are mostly see-through (like the attached image) - and stack more of them to get volume. Otherwise it looks like it's made of cartboard.

Yes we know, V2 is really hard on transparent pngs. Those tree look really good with V1 and Walk, unfortunately V2 is not that keen.
