I've inserted some custom families of road lighting fixtures (by a lighting fixtures manufacturer) in a Revit project.
I've found out a really strange behavior in the way Enscape renders the light emitted by the ies files.
As you can see in PICTURE 1 / 2 below, the fixture is set at a certain height from the ground (8 meters), and NO light in reaching the ground.
But still the fixture is emitting light (as you can see from the lit pole).

So I tried to change the fixture's offset from the ground.
At 1m height, the correct shape of the light emission is clearly visible (see PICTURE 3 below):
At 3 meters height, the real shape begins to "disappear" (see PICTURE 4):
At 6 meters height, the light on the ground has lost its real shape; now it is nearly round ( seePICTURE 5):
This behavior seems to me to be incorrect and not realistic.
I've made the same trials with other .ies files, but the result is always the same.
It would be really important to me if this issue is fixed, because otherwise I won't be able to use Enscape with Revit models of external area (fixtures on high poles).
Have you already accounted this issue? Have you already scheduled the fixing of this problem?
Thanks a lot.
