The light_decay filter specifies the attenuation ranges of where the light starts and ends.

The light_blocker filter will block out an arbitrary geometrically defined area of a connected light.Barndoors are opaque moving panels attached to the sides of the light's opening used for additional control over the shape of the light beam. 

The gobo filter is used to break up the light beam into an irregular, more natural pattern such as tree leaves, etc.Barndoors are opaque moving panels attached to the sides of the light's opening used for additional control over the shape of the light

beam. The light_blocker filter will block out an arbitrary geometrically defined area of a connected light.
