Improve Light Source Configuration by providing an outline of the Light from the changes made in the dialog
Improve the Light Source Configuration akin to the visual nature of the Grid Configuration Tool. The changes made in the Light Source Configuration dialog could show an outline of the lights emission angle, rotation and radius on the scene, to visualize how the light settings will change.
Currently, it's difficult to visualize the changes made to an existing Light source, since the user have to make changes and press Update Light, and then re-enter the configuration dialog to make additional changes if not right.
With this feature, the user would see an outline of the settings in Light Source Configuration when the dialog is opened nad changes are made:
- The light icon is surrounded by a bright red border and moves according to the changes made to X- and Y-Position settings
- Bright and Dim radius are shown with the same red border but different opacity, according to the respective radius settings
- The radii are drawn according to the emission angle and the rotation
- Make the Update Light button replace the outline with the actual configured Light, and have an additional "Save Light" button saving the configuration and close the dialog.
This outline could possibly be used in conjunction with this issue: Add resizing handle to modify the radius of light and audio sources after they have been placed
Low priority. Not sure if ultimately it would be better for the actual light so sync to the Configuration dialog (although performance-wise it would be worse).
