Contrary to other “light paint” solutions Leuchtkraft uses real lights instead of painting the “lights” on a high dynamic range image. Check some of the advantages:
fully animatable and light-linkable
supports different Light Types (Spot, Point, etc.)
can be placed between Objects
controllable per Light Contribution (Spec, Diff, etc.), Sampling and Decay
fully editable in Maya no need to switch between Apps
