Explain how the EmMesh aircraft lights parameter works; it does not find nodes.

The "EmMesh" parameter of the aircraft lighting config doesn't make any sense to me. I input the name of a node that has a material with emission, but in user lights window it always says "Emissive mesh not found". I think I'm missing a step somewhere, but that step is not documented. Defining the emission in the ModelBehaviors works fine, but in the default aircraft there is no mention of the exterior lights emission in the ModelBehaviors.

Hi Steven,

Did you check the DA62 sample provided with the SDK to see it's done?
This page of the documentation is giving some information. I know, it's not much but our tech writer has plans for more information about aircraft lights configuration.

Hope this helps,
Sylvain

In the sample it works, but literally copy/paste the config files, and give nodes the same names in Max with my own model and it's "Emissive mesh not found"
