Free (Flashlight) Light Cookies
Free (Flashlight) Light Cookies
You can use (Flashlight) Light cookies (or Spotlight Textures, or Light GOBO Textures) to create interesting light effects in your scene. This can really influence the mood in your scene. So it’s a simple, yet powerful tool.
For those who don’t know what a Light cookie is; it’s a texture you use in combination with a spotlight. With a Light cookie you can control where light is emitted and also what color of light is emitted. For example, you can fake sunlight passing through stained glass.
I made these 6 Flashlight Textures by shining my old flashlight on the ceiling and photographing the light that the flashlight emitted. For this I used my Yi M1 Mirrorless Camera and Darktable to process the RAW images.
Since my flashlight had different “light cookie diameter settings”, I took multiple photographs of different settings.
I made the images black and white, so you can control what color of light will be emitted in your scene. However, I would advise to have it emit a relatively warm light, because old flashlights still used small light-bulbs (and not LED).
In Blender (or any other 3D program) you can use these 6 flashlight textures in combination with the Spotlight Lamp.
The files are in PNG 16-Bit Grayscale format and (most of them) 3000 x 3000 px.
