[page:Object3D] → [page:Light] →


RectAreaLight emits light uniformly across the face a rectangular plane. This light type can be used to simulate light sources such as bright windows or strip lighting.

Important Notes:

Code Example

const width = 10; const height = 10; const intensity = 1; const rectLight = new THREE.RectAreaLight( 0xffffff, intensity, width, height ); rectLight.position.set( 5, 5, 0 ); rectLight.lookAt( 0, 0, 0 ); scene.add( rectLight ) const rectLightHelper = new THREE.RectAreaLightHelper( rectLight ); rectLight.add( rectLightHelper );
