Isaac Sim Tips & Useful Links¶
Using a Dome Light¶
Using a Dome Light provides a natural-looking lighting environment to the scene. From the Create menu select Light > Dome Light. From the Property menu, you can specify a 4k texture by selecting your desired .hdr file in the “Texture File” field. Then, adjust the Dome Light’s Intensity. Decreasing the intensity for example, will make the lighting appear less harsh.

Under the RTX Settings tab, select the Ray Tracing category. From here, you can select an anti-aliasing algorithm to apply.
