Wonderful tutorial Vlad!! Learned a couple of new tricks from this one.

On your randomized emitting-planes (warm and cold lights) do you have the emissive material applied to only the front faces, or to both sides?

Aviz, in thea only the front face is able to generate light. Backface is dead.

Oh interesting! I assumed Thea double face material would work for emission as well, but I guess not!

Thank you!
And as Oskar said, the light works only on the normal, not the backface, even though it's applied on both.
It would be good to have an option to light both faces...
