Is there a way to use a 3d fbx object as a light source?
Models aren't lights. Lights are lights.
You can always parent a light to a model (inside the model if Cast Shadows is off), but, if you're using a model with FBX animation (like walking/dancing etc) you'll have to animate the light to follow the animation.
@Triem23 you can actually fake lights by a glow texture but I don't know if you can transfer that data to fbx or not?
@Andersen01498 true, but I'm assuming OP wants to illuminate other objects in the scene.
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
