remove_all_lights

Plotter.remove_all_lights(only_active=False)

Remove all lights from the scene.

Parameters
only_activebool

If True, only remove lights from the active renderer. The default is that lights are stripped from every renderer.

Examples

Create a plotter and remove all lights after initialization. Note how the mesh rendered is completely flat

>>> import pyvista as pv
>>> plotter = pv.Plotter()
>>> plotter.remove_all_lights()
>>> plotter.renderer.lights
[]
>>> _ = plotter.add_mesh(pv.Sphere(), show_edges=True)
>>> plotter.show()
../../../_images/pyvista-Plotter-remove_all_lights-1_00_00.png

Note how this differs from a plot with default lighting

>>> pv.Sphere().plot(show_edges=True, lighting=True)
