Detailed Description

Light nodekit class.

This nodekit class is used to create light nodes that have a local transformation and a geometry icon to represent the light source. SoLightKit adds three public parts to the basic nodekit: transform , light , and icon .

SoLightKit creates an SoDirectionalLight as the light part by default - all other parts are NULL at creation.

You can move the light relative to the rest of the scene by creating and editing the transform part.

You can add a geometrical representation for the light by setting the icon part to be any scene graph you like.

SoLightKit also adds two private parts. An SoTransformSeparator contains the effect of transform to move only the light and icon , while allowing the light to illuminate the rest of the scene. The second private part is an SoSeparator, which keeps property nodes within the icon geometry from affecting the rest of the scene. It also serves to cache the icon even when the light or transform is changing.

SoLightKit is derived from SoBaseKit and thus also includes a callbackList part for adding callback nodes.
