    Hello

    I found really interesting the focus plane feature and especially the heatmap mode. I would like to ask whether is it only  a really cool way of showing the evenness of a wash light or if it could be used to get some rough real world values.

    So: How accurate it is? I assume it calculates values from direct lighting (no reflections etc.) And since the light outputs are modeled by photometric data from manufacturers, it should yield some accuracy in some cases (Haven't you by any chance tested in a real world?)

    And also: how are the colors on the heatmap associated with illuminance values? 

    Thank you very much

    The heatmap mode is as accurate as the photometric data stored in our library and does not take into account reflections. You may get lx values if you play with the min and max limits found in the properties menu. At the moment there is no colour - lx diagram for quicker colour interpretations.
