Hi, I know something similar has been covered before but I couldn't find anything related to this issue.
I have 4.26 UE version, here the issue:
I want to simulate a Spotlight just like in real life. According to documentation a light bulb is 1700 lumens, my suprise was that the default unit of Spotlights are Candelas (cd) and default value is 8 cd. The big question: How can I convert 8 cd to 1700 lumens?
I tried changing it to lumens in the units but then it changes to 14,107 ld, I have no way to manually type in the 1700 lumens. I tried an online converter and for 1700 lumens resulted in 135.28 cd which is obviously wrong IN UNREAL because jumping from 8 cd to 135 cd leaves 90% of the screen white.
Also tried viceversa with 1700 ld and same issue, all blown out as excpected.
