One of the popular toolsets of CG Magic are the features in Light section. This comprehensive lighting module empowers users to quickly create and adjust lights with ease. Whether you're aiming for a cozy indoor scene or a breathtaking outdoor vista, CG Magic's lighting tools allow you to fine-tune your lights in various aspects.

Just like some of the proprietary sections (such as interior) we introduced before, CG Magic was originally designed to serve interior designers. Therefore, in the lighting module, we have also provided users with many lamp models (with lights included) that are commonly used indoors.

Available types of light creation including bulbs, downlights, spotlights and light strips. You may use lamp models in CG Magic library, adjust parameters to customize your own lightings and even manage your own light library.
