I have a question regarding the scaling of lights alongside the scaling of a scene in Blender.
Say I have a scene consisting of a plane acting as a surface, and a simple white UV Sphere. Both are at their default size
I have an Area lamp shining directly perpendicular to the top of the UV sphere. The Area Lamp is at a distance of 6 units on the Z-axis, while the UV is at 0 .
I want to scale the entire scene down by a sixth of its original size. I can scale both the plane and sphere by 1/6 to reduce them to a sixth of their size
However, when I do the same to the area light, and reduce its strength and size by sixth in the material editor, it simply does not light the scene the same way as prior to scaling
So with that, comes my question. How do I scale everything in the scene , lights included , while also maintaining the same distance between mesh and lights, proportionally so that they look the exact same as before in the render, with only the scale values affected?
As you can see in following images,first image is how it looks un-scaled. This is how the scene should LOOK
In the second image, Mesh,plane are scaled by a sixth, light strength size scaled by sixth. Still does not look like first image at all
