I'm using Blender 2.8, using the Eevee render. I have added a spotlight. The cone and the 'light bulb' show as black lines in any view, it's a bit like a wireframe. Any idea how to get rid of these lines?enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Blender's StackExchange! The spotlight shows the light cone by default. Do you want to hide it or are you referring to something else? It may help if you add a screenshot and mark what particular lines you mean. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Aug 26 '19 at 21:54
  • $\begingroup$ I want the light cone to show, but I don't want the black outline of the cone, there is also a black line down the middle of the cone. Also the 'light bulb' is black. Sorry I'm new on here and don't know how to add a screenshot. $\endgroup$ – Angela Hart Aug 26 '19 at 22:01

    $\begingroup$ You can add an image to your question by clicking edit underneath it and then on the little image icon next to the curly braces. Do you mean the black lines that are shown in this image: i.stack.imgur.com/nwTal.jpg ? $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Aug 26 '19 at 22:13
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the adding image instructions. Yes those are the black lines, as shown in your image. $\endgroup$ – Angela Hart Aug 27 '19 at 8:30

    $\begingroup$ These lines are just to indicate the light's position, direction and light cone. They won't appear in the actual rendered image, in case that wasn't clear. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Aug 27 '19 at 9:00

To get rid of all overlays in preview render: enter image description here

  1. Disable "show cone" in the light settings cone diabled
  2. Disable "show overlays" in 3D View overlays disabled
  3. Disable "show Gizmo" also in 3D View gizmos disabled
  • $\begingroup$ Ahh OK, I thought the cone was a renderable function in itself!! Thank you $\endgroup$ – Angela Hart Aug 28 '19 at 9:17
