    Add Lighting Using Light Components in React VR

    15 - 16

    In order to illuminate a scene containing 3D objects a lighting setup is required. In this lesson we'll walk through the available lighting components and create a common outdoor lighting setup.

    This includes the components: <AmbientLight/>, which affects all objects in the scene equally and from all directions; <DirectionalLight/>, which illuminates all objects equally from a given direction; <PointLight/>, which spreads outward in all directions from one point; and finally <SpotLight/>, which spreads outwards in the form of a cone.

    A handy demo for <SpotLight/> can be found here.
