I am a MAYA user for last 12 years and I am making my transition to Blender these days and I found Blender is far more superior than MAYA only with some exceptions. Light linking is an one thing I find it easily done in MAYA (I still don't know if there is any easy way Blender does it better)
So what I want to do is, as an example, I have this room in Blender and I want a light illuminate only the walls in the room not any other objects in the scene???
As you can see walls are not lighten. I want walls to be seen slightly without adding any more light spill on other objects in the center.
