position

property Light.position

Return the position of the light.

Note: the position is defined in the coordinate space indicated by the light’s transformation matrix (if it exists). To get the light’s world space position, use the (read-only) world_position property.

Examples

Create a light positioned at (10, 10, 10) after initialization, and note how the position is unaffected by a non-trivial transform matrix.

>>> import numpy as np
>>> import pyvista as pv
>>> light = pv.Light()
>>> light.position = (10, 10, 10)
>>> # set a "random" transformation matrix
>>> light.transform_matrix = np.arange(4 * 4).reshape(4, 4)
>>> light.position
(10.0, 10.0, 10.0)
