Overview 


The Light Render Element stores direct lighting information from lights in the scene, and materials as lit by the lighting. It is a combination of diffuse coefficient and direct illumination. This render element can be used to brighten, lessen, or tint the direct lighting in a composite.

The Light render element is the same as Raw Lighting multiplied by Diffuse Filter.
