Lighting vector extrusions

Light sources enhance the three-dimensional effect created with vector extrusions as well as the effect of the fill you apply. CorelDRAW produces the lighting effect by creating and applying simulated white light sources. You can add up to three light sources that you can project toward the extruded object from different with varying intensity.

You can control the amount of light (also called intensity) originating from the selected light source. Creating multiple light sources with high intensity settings, for example, causes extruded surfaces to appear very light in color.

Light sources always strike the control object directly and affect extruded surfaces to a lesser degree. Therefore, if the control object is partially hidden from view because it has been rotated, the change in light source direction or intensity may not be readily apparent.
