enter image description hereI´m making this question because I´ve been on a project and I´ve just been able to create a spotlight with image texture using cycles, but I´ve been using Eevee with all the project and I need to use the same render engine with everything I create, so has someone been able to create a spotlight with image texture using Eevee?

Now you can see the spotlight I´m using and the nodes I´m using

    $\begingroup$ If you mean you want an image to cast off light as an emission, this only really works in Cycles. To make it work in EEVEE, you will need Screen Space Reflections (if you want to see the image in reflections), and an Irradiance Volume to make the glowing light "cast" on to things. However, keep in mind that this is type of effect is rather limited by the eevee renderer, and requires much tweaking to make it look accurate - it will never look as "real" as cycles, and may not even be capable of producing the effect you're looking for. $\endgroup$ Oct 7, 2021 at 15:27

    $\begingroup$ Another way of looking at it (if that's all your after) is that there is a difference between how "lights" are used in EEVEE and Cycles. EEVEE differentiates between "lights" (point lights, spot, etc..) and emissive objects, whereas in Cycles, all lights are emissive objects (if you select a light in Cycles, go to its properties, check "use nodes" and go to the shading tab, you will see that the light is made of an Emission shader) $\endgroup$ Oct 7, 2021 at 15:31
