      Effect:Stage Light
      Category:Procedural Sources

      Description: The Stage Light Effect creates a single spotlight.

      Stage Light uses Color 1 for the light and Color 2 for the stage (background). Light colors, such as yellow or white, work best for Color 1, while dark colors (dark blue, black) work best for Color 2 (to generate a realistic effect).

      If you enable the Fit To Brush Option you will paint with the Stage Light Effect sized to your brush.

      Options: The Stage Light Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Light Angle:This sets the angle of the light source relative to the position.
      Cone Size:This value controls the overall size of the cast light cone. Larger values make larger light cones.
      X Position:This value controls the position of the stage light in the X (horizontal) direction.
      Y Position:This value controls the position of the stage light in the Y (vertical) direction.
      Fit To Brush:If set to a Red X the Effect spans the screen such that as you paint you reveal the Effect. When set to a Green Check Mark the Effect is sized to the brush such that as you paint the entire Effect is within the brush itself.
      Output Color 1:By default this is set to REPLACE which means that the set color will be output to Color 1. You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.
      Output Color 2:By default this is set to IGNORE which means that the Color 2 will be ignored (the original Color 2 will be kept). You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.

      Example: The following image shows the Stage Light Effect with its default settings and Color 1 set to white and Color 2 set to a dark blue:

      This next image combines two Effects. In Slot 1 we use the Texture Effect with its Output Color 1 set to Ignore and Output Color 2 set to Replace. We loaded our Arches National Park photo as the Texture. In Slot 2 we have our Stage Light Effect with default settings:
