I created a black & white PNG "emissive map" to show where light should be emitted from on the texture, but how do I actually put an emissive map onto a UV unwrapped object Blender? How do I have to setup the nodes? In a game engine like UE I'd have to import all my maps (diffuse, specular, normal, emissive, alpha etc) then wire up all those maps into the appropriate inputs in a material node, and then only the parts in white on the emissive map would be emissive but I cant see any way to do this in Blender.

I have two objects emitting light, but I want that only one will be responsible for casting shadows. How to do this? Pyroglyph October 10, 2017 at 19:31Log in to Reply Is there a way to make the emitted light more… interesting? By that I mean the lights I've made simply look like they are just splodges of light (which they are). I was hoping to create some sort of effect like a glowing robot eye/torch but I have no idea what to change (being new to Cycles and all). What would be the best way of accomplishing this?

I have been trying to use a simple point light as well as others to get specifically a effect like this for about half a hour, then came to view tuts that explained a more complex process that did not actually work….then I found this.
