Selecting Create > New Spotlight allows you to create a new Spotlight in your scene. A Spotlight is a directional light that covers an adjustable area in the shape of a cone, such as a flashlight.
Spotlights emit a cone of light in a certain direction. You can control the direction and width of the cone in degrees. As mentioned above, the difference between spot lights and point lights can be hard to see from certain angles. The main thing to remember is that spot lights only cast light in their specified cones. Objects outside those cones do not receive any direct illumination. The image shows an example of a spot light shining down onto the object from above and o the side.
In addition to the default parameters, each Spotlight has the following parameters to control the light cone which is the visible wireframe showing where the light's influence will be. The blue line in the cone is the Line of Sight showing the direct line to where the most light is concentrated.
