Just started blender, following the donut tutorial. Using Blender 2.8. made another donut to practice, when adding Lights I can't find the 'Use Nodes' in the Light settings. Some help would be appreciated <3 enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ What happens if you go into the node editor? I think it might just already be checked by default, so they removed the button, but you should still be fine without it. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Doesn't show any nodes and I can't add any to the Light either. I can edit normally in the Node editor only for "World" but not the Light $\endgroup$ Aug 27, 2019 at 5:00

    $\begingroup$ You'll need to set the correct render engine. In file 2 very likely you have set it to eevee. Use cycles instead. $\endgroup$

You need to be in Cycles to be able to see the Use Nodes button for lights
