3-D Light Source

The 3-D Light Source ("Light") dialog sets the position and properties of the light source for illuminated surface plots. This tool window may be open while you do other things in Mira. Settings in the window are those of the current 3-D Plot window having focus.

  • The 3-D Light Source dialog opens from the View > Light Source menu or from the 3-D Plot Context Menu.


Click [Save] to save the current settings as the default for future plots. The settings in this window automatically persist for the 3-D Plot that has focus but do not automatically apply to future plots unless you click this button.
