I see we have a burning torch, but is there a way of having a flashlight (normal hand torch)? Can we have one in a pack please? I have an excellent idea for a film I want to make but I would really need a torch in it, of course it would need to be a light source too.

Excellent idea! I would want at least two animations, the Hollywood "hold near head" and a more realistic "hold near waist".

Also, if you couldn't hold the flashlight in either hand, I would prefer it be held in the left hand so right-handed props could be used at the same time.

Yeah...could be real handy with a 'POINT AT' command...
...especially for those shock horror reveals ; )
And there was much rejoicing...

Just bringing up this post from 10,000 years ago. Did anyone manage to create a hand held torch at all, as its pretty embarrassing that my investigators are searching a building at night without one, they keep bumping into all sorts of things and have yet to find anything. rolleyes.gif

Not that I am aware of. I think someone used the workaround I sugested that involves the followspot, but no actual hand held flashlights.

Can`t MS make a held prop that works similar to the spot light? Or is there something particularly special about the spotlight that wouldn`t work in a torch held prop?

Numerous times I have desired a torch because the burning torch doesn`t quite look right ina modern scene blink.gif

I'm guessing when you say "torch" you are referring to a flashlight?

If you mean a "torch" as in "villagers carrying them", Watson has a wonderful one with his cave addon.
