    IES files

    I don't know if I am doing something wrong here, but I have repeatedly tried to create custom light fixture families and utilize manufacturer-provided IES files for the lighting distribution. I switch the source to Photo-web and then I browse to locate the IES file. I expect to see a the light source object's shape to mimic the lighting distribution, but all I get is a representation that I would expect for a point source. What am I missing here? Do I have to copy the IES files to the folder in the RAC? I would prefer to leave them in an IES folder in our office library.

    Shouldn't matter what folder you save the IES files in... It's been a while since I used IES files, so just tested it in RAC 2012 and get the same behavior as you describe above... The good news is that it seems to be working as it should in Revit 2013.

    If upgrading to 2013 is not an option, you should file a Support Request.
