What’s New With Dynamic Lighting?

Dynamic Lighting is one of our favorite features! (Don’t tell the quantum roller.) Since it’s one of our favorites, we’re always trying to release new improvements to make your game shine. Here’s info on our latest updates:

What’s Brand New?


New Tool: Place Light In Toolbar On Dev! 

We want lighting your dungeons to be easier! After selecting this tool, a left click will create a new token on whichever layer is currently selected. That token will emit Bright Light for 20 feet and Low Light for 20 feet. The light settings can be changed in the token settings like any other Token. Check out the Forum Announcement here. 

Feature: Colored Lights Are Live!
Colored lights and Nocturnal Vision have been two of our most requested features over the years. Now with the updated Dynamic Lighting framework, we can bring you the awesome updates you’ve been looking for. 
Feature: Product Board Tracking
